DNS setting help, strange occurrences...





ddoonie
I have a few quick questions to ask regarding my dns setup etc... I had it working for a brief second earlier, everything the way i wanted it. Basically i am trying to forward my domain to my frihost account, while using my google apps for mail. I set up an a record to redirect to the frihost ip (with my domain registrar), and set up a mal.a;lskdjf.com CNAME directed at the google URL. In my Cpanel, i added my domain, and uploaded an HTML to test.

The frihost address with my site works on all my computers... But this is the strange part... On my PC with IE, and firefox, i can type in my site, either www.wilsoonie.com or wilsoonie.com, and it gets redirected favicon and all. When i do the same on my mac in safari and opera, no dice! It goes to the turquoise "Great Success ! Apache is working on your cPanel® and WHM™ Server" page. no matter what i do, have emptied cache etc...

my mail.wilsoonie.com would not redirect on either computer, but www.mail.wilsoonie.com did on the pc (i believe my error in the CNAME, i included the www in the redirect?)

my mail.wilsoonie.com nor my www.mail.wilsoonie.com work, the just get forwarded to that turquoise page, and www.wilsoonie.com is in the address bar.

Can anyone shed some light as to what i should do?

Thanks for your time!!

Quick update, none of my forwarding on any computer works now...

exact settings as of this moment... MX settings for google set up. URL forwarded from wilsoonie.com to www.wilsoonie.com (passing subdirectories). There are 2 A records, www.wilsoonie.com to 216.32.68.250, and *.wilsoonie.com to 216.32.68.250. I have added my domain to the hosting software, and created a subdomain, mail.wilsoonie.com (redirected to) http://mail.google.com/a/wilsoonie.com/
My name servers are pointing to my original domain registrar.

Those are all my settings, and it no longer works... I am using my A records rather than changing the NS records as i still want my email to be going through google.

Can anyone tell me what is incorrect about these settings?

the site to be forwarded to is still up and running fine.

Thanks

Sorry to keep posting, main reason is this will be a christmas gift of sorts, so i'm trying to get it running... frihost site is wilsoonie.frihost.net, domain name is wilsoonie.com via www.mydomain.com (registrar)

I'm trying to troubleshoot, sooo right now... Parked domain wilsoonie.com on cpanel, and thats it.

my DNS settings, well MX is all to google, name servers are to ns1.mydomain.com (default), created 2 a records, wilsoonie.com to 216.32.68.250 and *.wilsoonie.com to 216.32.68.250

Disabled URL forwarding

These are the only settings i have now, this should work no?

ps... this is the activity when i try to load my site (via safari)

Ok i believe i solved the issue... for anyone that may search and stumble upon this thread... my final settings ARE correct, the problem is with the IP. In my account info on this forum it states 216.32.68.250, but through searching and no keywords finding the sites that i needed, i tried the IP displayed in cPanel 72.249.102.79. Forwarded both my a records there, and it seems to be working on my PC at the moment. Will wait till tomorrow to test out the mac, as of this time does not work yet...
