I’m building an MVP and trialling netlify as a place to host it.
The product is represented as:
- A public nuxt 3 website hosted on example.com
- A client portal built with vue 3 hosted on app.example.com
The above are two seperate “sites” on netlify because there’s two repos.
This is easy. Where i’m struggling is the following:
I would like to redirect pages under example.com/store/:storename to :storename.example.com.
storename is dynamic.
I’ve setup a
_redirects file which actually works, but when I land on :storename.example.com i get a 404.
/store/:storename/* https://:storename.example.com/:splat 301
I have also enabled a wildcard CNAME entry in my netlify DNS (*.example.com)
I’ve also stumbled upon this helpful thread, but not helpful enough to fix my worries - Support for wildcard domains and multiple custom domains - if anything I’m a bit more confused.
- Is it true that if I use a wildcard entry (*.example.com) i would no longer be able to use something like app.example.com?
- Do I need to add some server side code (like a netlify function) to help this along?
