Use custom subdomain with A records

Solved! Go to Solution.

I want to use my pages site with a custom subdomain like blog.example.com. I have set up A records for that and it works, but the account page shows a warning that using CNAME records is recommended. Why arent A records for subdomains not recommened like for apey domains? Does this still work?

 

Thanks.

Re: Use custom subdomain with A records

Hi @NiklasMerz,

 

Thanks for being part of the GitHub Community Forum! A records will work just fine, but CNAME records are considered best practice, so that's why we recommend them. 

I hope this helps!

 

Cheers!

Thanks thats fine for me. Is there any way to turn off the e-mail warning I get every time I push?
