How to direct wildcard to Netlify when apex domain at AWS Route53?

Regarding site…

Apex domain is configured at AWS Route 53.
Subdomain landing page is hosted at Netlify.

Everything is working fine, except wildcard traffic.

* should redirect to

Instead, for wildcard URLs I receive a plaintext error message:

Not Found - Request ID: 01G78FM992P7DRHZZPNSAD6Y68.

Using dig on wildcard URLs gives:

;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NXDOMAIN, id: 20534
;; flags: qr rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 0, AUTHORITY: 0, ADDITIONAL: 0

At Route53, within the host zone of the apex domain, I have tried both of the following (at different times) to route * to www:

* A

Please help. Thank you.

Hey @cametumbling,

Wildcard is not something that’s enabled by default. We can enable it for sites on Pro and above teams.

The additional requirement is that, you need to bring your own wildcard SSL certificate if you’re not using Netlify DNS.
