    Hi I have a domain that uses an external DNS.

    I created the domain in plesk like: domain.nl
    This works as it should, now I want to have the www.domain.nl to be also working.

    How do I configure plesk and dns to get both the domain.nl and www.domain.nl working.

    I tried to create a A record in the external dns for www.domain.nl and then point that to my server.
    this works so far that the www.domain.nl request ends at my server, but it ends up at the default plesk site, and not at my domainsite. Ik seems that plesk/iis does not recognize my www.domain.nl.

    Hope someone can help


    Thanks in advance

    Do you have the same CNAME record on your external DNS server?

    Check what your DNS server works correctly and there is CNAME record with

    $ dig @IP_OF_DNS_SERVER yourdomain.com

    Same here

    IM TIRED OF IT.

    All DNS are ok, exactly like MaartenB user.

    I cannot get it working...

    Outside DNS provide by REGISTRO.BR (Brazilian authority registrar).

    So what now?

    At plesk I've configured both DNS's a.sec.dns.br and b.sec.dns.br....

    After query though plesk, it says:

    Test DNS zone live1.com.br on a.sec.dns.br.
    Info
    Name: live1.com.br Address: 50.22.210.100 live1.com.br nameserver = b.sec.dns.br. live1.com.br nameserver = a.sec.dns.br. live1.com.br mail exchanger =0 aspmx.l.google.com. live1.com.br mail exchanger =5 alt1.aspmx.l.google.com. live1.com.br mail exchanger =5 alt2.aspmx.l.google.com. live1.com.br mail exchanger =10 aspmx2.googlemail.com. live1.com.br mail exchanger =10 aspmx3.googlemail.com. live1.com.br mail exchanger =10 aspmx4.googlemail.com. live1.com.br mail exchanger =10 aspmx5.googlemail.com. www.live1.com.br canonical name = live1.com.br. *** Ok : Domain A live1.com.br record is valid. *** : Must be - 50.22.210.100, now - 50.22.210.100 *** Warning : Domain MX record live1.com.br IN MX 0 aspmx.l.google.com. is not properly resolved. *** Warning : Domain MX record live1.com.br IN MX 5 alt1.aspmx.l.google.com. is not properly resolved. *** Warning : Domain MX record live1.com.br IN MX 5 alt2.aspmx.l.google.com. is not properly resolved. *** Warning : Domain MX record live1.com.br IN MX 10 aspmx2.googlemail.com. is not properly resolved. *** Warning : Domain MX record live1.com.br IN MX 10 aspmx3.googlemail.com. is not properly resolved. *** Warning : Domain MX record live1.com.br IN MX 10 aspmx4.googlemail.com. is not properly resolved. *** Warning : Domain MX record live1.com.br IN MX 10 aspmx5.googlemail.com. is not properly resolved. *** Ok : Domain www CNAMe record is valid.
