wildcard dns

0

Hi,
I just started with lightsail and I am trying to set up a multisite wordpress instance to work something like wordpress.com where my students can setup their own wordpress subsite (like student.mydomain.com)
Herefore I think I need a wildcard dns for *.mydomain.com.
I do not want to create every subdomain manually, I just want to point my students to the wp-signup.php file and let them set it up.

Can anybody help me to set up the wildcard dns so I can do this? I am a total newbie on this
Kind regards,
Natascha

Are you using Lightsail DNS? If so, it's pretty easy, just create a DNS entry with the subdomain '*' and point it to your Lightsail instance or IP.

What have you tried? What errors have you encountered?

Hi,

Lightsail support creating wildcard DNS record as specified here: https://lightsail.aws.amazon.com/ls/docs/en_us/articles/understanding-dns-in-amazon-lightsail. You can create DNS records like A/NS/etc on Lightsail web console, and pointing to the ip address or load balancer of your wordpress instance. Hope it helps!
