I cannot add a custom domain,

Hi, I have a freenom website. I Have on of 2 options, either I can change the nameservers to netlify, or change the DNS to netlify ones. There in A type record, I cannot do @, It gives me an error called “Wildcard Record not supported”. I have tried changing nameservers pointing to netlify but they dont work for me. Can somebody help?

Hi @DevDaksh. Welcome to our Community!

I want to make sure you have the correct instructions for adding an A record and CNAME record at freenom: [Common Issue] Can I host my site on Netlify but keep my DNS at my domain registrar?

Can you send us a screenshot of the error you are seeing on freenom? I don’t have any domains there myself so I want to see what their domain panel looks like so I can make sure our directions make sense for freenom.

Thank you @laura for replying. The issue is sorted.

Hi @DevDaksh, How did you do it? I have the same problem, but I can’t solve it


Hi, @Venax. Are you using the external DNS instructions or the Netlify DNS instructions?

Also, where are you creating the DNS records? If you are making them at your registrar’s service, what registrar do you use?
