If Netlify controls the DNS, can I modify its DNS records to make Google App Engine custom domains happy?

PLEASE help us help you by writing a good post!

My Netlify site is here: https://learnanything.dev

The issue I have is that I have domain bought with Google Domains. I then made Google Domains use Netlify DNS custom servers. 4 of them.

I then want to deploy my API endpoints as a subdomain. so api.learnanything.dev in my case.

If I try do this, GCP tells me to do this:

CleanShot 2022-06-11 at 20.59.56@2x

Redacted actual record values.

Continue in reply as I can’t do another image embed otherwise.

The issue though it seems Netlify doesn’t let me do it in the UI. Get this error:

Please help as I’d like to use Netlify fully as it says I have better performance this way. Thank you.

Hey @nikitavoloboev

The A record you are attempting to create in the second screenshot is not for api.learnanything.dev but for learnanything.dev (indicated by the @ symbol).

For the name values, you need to put api and www.api along with the required IP address.

Can you provide an example. I have the same issue but don’t understand your answer. What do you mean you need to pu api and www.api. WHERE?

Hey @caesco

This is a direct example

Thanks, will try. I’m trying to set same api connection, so not sure what to expect after this set up.
