    Hey all,

    I am trying to set up a blog farm and need a little bit of guidance. My goal is to setup wildcard subdomains that map to different ips. So for example 1.xxx.com maps to and 2.xxx.com maps to and etc..

    I read rjhere's guide on dp forums, however, I need some clarification. I tried to contact him but to no avail. Here's what he said:

    Here's what I did. I created an account with editdns.net; I then proceeded to add my subdomain, let's say 1.xxx.com.

    I immediately changed the A record and put my ip address there. Did I do everything correctly?

    What I fail to understand is the last step, where rjhere mentioned to add a new "a" record with *.yourdomain.com pointing to your dedicated IP...didn't I just do that?

    If someone can make this more clear I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

    editdns is for use if you don;t have access to change A Records (some registrars are a little behind). So if you do have access to A records, then just set them up individually with out using editdns.
