Different DNS resolution for multiple IPs

Parth Maniar asked:

Greeting’s, I am trying to configure different DNS resolutions for:

  1. maniarfamily.com — I want maniarfamily.com (or www.maniarfamily.com / https://www.maniarfamily.com) to point to Wix (23.236.62.147).
  2. cloud.maniarfamily.com — I want this to point to a different IP 116.72.137.140

I have purchased the domain from GoDaddy and I am using GoDaddy’s nameservers.

Following are the records I have made:

for maniarfamily.com:

  1. “A” record with @ pointing to 23.236.62.147
  2. “CNAME” record with www.maniarfamily.com pointing to www37.wixdns.net
  3. “CNAME” record with www pointing to www38.wixdns.net
  4. “NS” record with maniarfamily.com pointing to ns10.wixdns.net
  5. “NS” record with maniarfamily.com pointing to ns11.wixdns.net

for cloud.maniarfamily.com:

  1. “A” record with cloud.maniarfamily.com pointing to 116.72.137.140.
  2. “A” record with www.cloud.maniarfamily.com pointing to 116.72.137.140.
  3. “CNAME” record with cloud pointing to cloud.maniarfamily.com
  4. “CNAME” record with cloud pointing to cloud.maniarfamily.com

There are default entries by GoDaddy of nameservers (NS)

NS @ ns15.domaincontrol.com
NS @ ns16.domaincontrol.com

I am obviously doing it horribly wrong. As earlier cloud.maniarfamily.com used to correctly resolve to 116.72.137.140.

However current nslookup output for cloud.maniarfamily.com:

nslookup cloud.maniarfamily.com 8.8.8.8
    Server:  dns.google
    Address:  8.8.8.8
    dns.google can't find cloud.maniarfamily.com: Server failed

However current nslookup output for maniarfamily.com: <— This is as required.

Non-authoritative answer:
Name:    maniarfamily.com
Address:  23.236.62.147

My answer:


The two NS records you added are wrong. These must not be changed without also changing where your DNS is hosted, but you did not do that. You chose to host your DNS at GoDaddy, not at Wix. They must be changed back to ns15.domaincontrol.com. and ns16.domaincontrol.com.
