Domains I've setup using a wildcard aren't propagating.

Linode Staff

I've added my domains to DNS Manager but they aren't propagating. Could someone assist with this please?

You'll need to make sure that there are blank 'A' and 'AAAA' records for your domain that points to your server's IPv4 and IPv6 addresses. Using just a wildcard (*) would configure subdomains to the IP address but not the primary domain. You can test this using the dig command and here are some examples:

dig domain_name +short
dig test.domain_name +short
