DNS wildcard help


Hi everybody.. I set up a cpanel and add a new dedicated IP address in IP FUNCTIONS in whm and tied it to the cpanel account that I've created.. Let just say I'm using the domain name "mydomain.com" in this cpanel account.

Now, I want to add a DNS wildcard in this account. I use * for the name field and use the main shared IP ADDRESS for the address.. I'm expecting name.mydomain.com to work but it just give me the generic page of the server..

Is there something I missed up? Please help. Thanks..

Hi conflicker,

Please DO NOT use chatting "language" in the forum. Use full words.

Are you talking about the generic page of a webserver? If that's the case, you need to create name.mydomain.com as virtual host in your webserver.
To verify if your wildcard dns works, try to resolve name.mydomain.com
Code:
nslookup name.mydomain.com
Cheers
