My app users subdomains for user accounts, ie
How can I achieve this in Pagoda Box? Is there wildcard domain support? I read in this topic http://help.pagodabox.com/customer/portal/articles/175471-creating-a-dns-alias that all subdomains are included by default. How does this work? Does that mean Pagoda automatically creates a wildcard subdomain DNS entry?
We don’t create any DNS entries, but when you add an alias, it makes your app accept traffic for those domains. That means that if you added myapp.com as an alias, anything.myapp.com would be listened to.
Can you clarify?
I have tested this with one of my apps.
DNS is set to myappname.com but when I try to access test.myappname.com I get a 404
Do I need to create an alias for each subdomain in the dns tab:
You don’t need to create Aliases for the subdomains, but you do need to create DNS A-records for each of the subdomains and point those to the IP shown next to your toplevel dns alias (myappname.com) in your dashboard.
