Hello!

I'm a hosting a web site at my apache server (www.fragmania.one). I bought the domain at one.com and redirecting the address from one.com to my own server with dynamic ip.

My current settings for redirecting is:
DOMAIN TYPE VALUE
www.fragmania.one CNAME my.exampledns.org

DOMAIN TYPE VALUE
fragmania.one A Default

For the A type I'm using standard settings and I have uploaded an index.php file that will redirect to www.fragmania.one.

index.php:
<?php
header("location:http://www.fragmania.one/");
?>

Now to my questions:
1. Is this the best way to do when i have dynamic ip?
2. Any problems that may occur when i redirect this way?

I cant use one.com for hosting the website because it need to communicate locally with my game servers when they are online.

the best way (for me) is to have a CNAME for fragmania.one poiting to a dyn DNS name. So you don't have to change the A record over and over again.

The redirection is fine.

When i use CNAME at one.com I cant redirect fragmania.one. It says CNAME cant be used on root level.

But thx for the answer. I just wanted some confirmation about my redirection and it works fine so i will probably keep it like this. (:

Thats a limitation by the company whos DNS services ur using. Try using 3party DNS service like FreeDNS by changing name servers.
Also note email will not work for this domain.
