We have two zone www.example.com and example.com, our website hosted on www.example.com so it has @ IN A x.x.x.x record in www.example.com and every this working fine. But today we host website on cloudfront and they said point www.example.com to CNAME cloud hosted server. Now if I add @ IN CNAME cloudfront.blah.com give me error and if I'm trying to put that entry in example.com it's not working because we have www.example.com zone there. What would be best way to handle it.

  • Do you have records besides the origin in the www.example.com zone? – thrig Aug 15 '17 at 15:30
  • Your question is not clear, give the true names involved, because I doubt that www.example.com is a zone – Patrick Mevzek Aug 15 '17 at 22:07
  • @patrick it's confidential i can't reveal the original name of company. hope you understand policy. – Satish Aug 15 '17 at 22:17
  • @thrig yes we have many record in www.example.com zone besides @ origin – Satish Aug 15 '17 at 22:20
  • Sorry, can't help you then. The DNS is public, obfuscation is useless. Beside, you are surely paying CloudFront for a service, did you ask them for help? – Patrick Mevzek Aug 16 '17 at 11:44
