Trouble shooting "www"


I’m kind of new with all this and is self teaching myself everything so please be patient. I currently have my domain “” being point to my public domain for a website. However, I would also like the domain to point to a private network IP for the admin side of it. I used the configuration provided to me by the self-hosted platform but it’s configured to have “” be pointed to the admin private network IP and just “” with the “@” and “*” DNS name set to my public IP. Essentially, i would like to have them reverse or would it be easier to just set a subdomain for the admin site?

It sounds like would just need to swap the IPs in the DNS records so that IP configured for www goes to the @ and the @ IP goes to www

Unfortunately, this is what my DNS settings ended up like. It doesn’t have my private IP at all…

The config file below

; Basic ipv4/ipv6 records
@ 3600 IN A
@ 3600 IN AAAA 2601:601:100:fab0:48ca:1cff:fe1d:90fb

I suggest you not use AAAA records for now. That should make it easier to manage while you work through this.

If you want to use a ‘www’ hostname, I suggest you explicitly set that in DNS. The wildcard will cover anything else that’s not specified.
