I know it's Saturday and you are all getting ready to go party :P but I would like to ask you to do this before you https://masto.host/changing-your-instances-dns-settings
It's not mandatory and nothing will happen if you don't but I think you should *wink wink*
This will hopefully be the last time I ask you to play with DNS settings.
@mastohost Just made the changes, although I was a bit surprised I had to remove the IPv6 address. Not to wait for it to propagate and test it.
@mastohost Yeah. I'm not going to fool with the CName records right now though. I'll just use the other two A record addresses explained above and revisit things if I have problems.
@mastohost sorry I do not understand to whom this call applies. I have "mijn.masto,host" but in the settings (logged in as Administraor) I don't see any DNS setting options. I guess this is meant for another type of user or? I assume you already arranged the correct settings for end-users like me ;-)
@zandbelt Yep, you are correct and thank you for looking.
Instances using mast.host subdomains are already on the new settings, I have changed them yesterday :)
@mastohost Not at home atm, have just my phone with me. Will change the settings when I'm at home :-)
@mastohost Seems to be working. My TTL is an hour though so I'll see if it still works later today. Lol.
@david It looks good. You are using vip.masto.host so you are ok, the TTL can be as long as you like. Thanks a lot
@mastohost Have you considered setting up a mailing list for everyone who hosts with you, so you can blast this sort of info to their inboxes?
@ramsey I thought about it but I hate to email people unless is strictly necessary.
If it was mandatory to do this, I would email but as it's optional, I just announce it here and contact the 'big offenders' to ask to do it :)
@mastohost Done. Btw if you manage the dns settings in Fastmail it should be vip.masto.host (without a . at the end).
@eric yea, so DNS settings are different from others, it's a real pain to explain.
Thanks for the info.
I had a look to your settings and it looks good. Thanks for changing them :)
@mawr Thanks and thanks :)
I had a look and it's already propagating with the new settings. Looking good. Thanks
@AndrewLewman I can’t really complain, they have been good to me but yes they already should have portable IPv6. Well and a lot of other things but that is one of them :) still, I have doubts I could run Masto.host offering plans at the prices I do if OVH didn’t exist and their support in Portugal has been helping me a lot.
If your DNS allows for CNAME or ANAME or ALIAS in root, then use that instead of A records and you get IPv6. Or just leave the old one AAAA record.
@AndrewLewman I haven’t used Hetzner much but I need vRack support and when I looked I couldn’t find it on Hetzner but Hetzner has even better prices in some products and from my limited experience works well.
