Wild Card DNS, What is it and how do I use it?

Wildcard DNS makes it so that any subdomain redirects to your main website.

So, if anyone types randomjunk.domain.com or fakename.domain.com, it will go to http://domain.com/ .

You can add this record via cPanel by following these steps:

  • Go into your cPanel, go to Subdomains.
  • Add a subdomain called *
  • Make sure to set the document root to your public_html folder.
