Website temporary access

Postby Copyfight » Sat Aug 13, 2016 1:59 pm

I've created a new "addon domain" and pointed the domain nameservers to Liway's NS.
Meanwhile DNS changes propagate, how can I temporarily access to my website?

http://72.249.77.237/{$something} ?

Thanks.

I've set the IP-domain association in my etc/hosts file and it's working like a charm. :)

A question to Max: when one creates an "addon domain", what happens behind the scenes?

I mean... is it created a DNS zone for the new domain? Which records are created?

Thank you so much.

Hi

Yes, your hosts file is the best way to gain temporarily access.

On the server a zone file is created with named (the nameserver daemon used to resolve dns records on our server) for every different domain name used as a parked or addon domain, and it will have records pointing back to the server itself.

Max, could you tell me which DNS records are created when we create an "addon domain"?

What is the domain you created? I'll happily just take a screenshot of it's zone records so that you can see.
