Support DNS Wildcard Description

Wildcard Description

Concept

  • Wildcard: uses the wildcard * to match all subdomains.
  • Hybrid wildcard: adds a restriction on the basis of wildcard so that records can be categorized as needed.

Wildcard levels description

When you add DNS resolution, you can use a wildcard to add records. The host can contain the \* symbol to substitute for the domain levels of the current plan. The domain levels represent the number of domain levels that can be entered in the host, and the levels are separated by dots.
For example, www.dnspod.com is 1 level, m.www.dnspod.com is 2 levels, and so on.
The following uses the "Free plan" as an example:

  • General adding method:
  • Wildcard adding method:

Node:

  • For example, if you are using the Individual Professional plan, and your domain name is dnspod.com, then you can use * instead of the domain levels of the plan, such as m.www.dnspod.com and n.m.www.dnspod.com.
  • The description of the hybrid wildcard levels is the same as the above. When you add a record, the host can contain the \* symbol to indicate the domain levels of the current plan.
Plan Wildcard Levels Hybrid Wildcard Levels
Free 2 -
Individual Professional 4 -
Enterprise Basic 6 6
Enterprise Standard 8 8
Enterprise Ultimate 10 10

Examples

Wildcard

When multiple subdomains that you need to resolve correspond to the same IP, you can add them in the following two ways:

  • General adding method: when you have multiple subdomains, you need to add multiple records for DNS resolution as shown below:
  • Wildcard method: when you have multiple subdomains, you only need to add one record to resolve all of them as shown below:

    Compared with the general record adding method, adding records through wildcard is more simplified.

Hybrid wildcard

When multiple subdomains to be resolved can be grouped according to a certain restriction, and each group corresponds to only one IP, you can add them in the following two ways:

  • General adding method: when you have multiple subdomains, you need to add multiple records for DNS resolution as shown below:
  • Hybrid wildcard method: when you have multiple subdomains, you only need to add records by group to resolve all of them as shown below:

Node:

  • For hybrid wildcard, you can add three characters before or after *, such as aaa* or *aaa.
  • Hybrid wildcard is supported only in the Enterprise plan.
    Node:

    Compared with the general record adding method, adding records through hybrid wildcard is more simplified.
