This blog was originally located at http://ge.github.io, but I wanted to refer to it as http://george.entenman.name.
Here’s what I did.
I got my jekyll blog working at http://ge.github.io.
Basically I followed the directions I found in github’s documentation:
I set up a CNAME file (not record) in my home directory (i.e., /CNAME).
As soon as I pushed the CNAME file to github, http://ge.github.io became unavailable.
I had to ask Dotster.com, my registrar, to fix the CNAME record for george.entenman.name. I did that because I found their form for doing this too confusing.
When they had finished the job, dig returned records that looked like what github required:
$ dig @ns1.dotster.com george.entenman.name +nostats +nocomments +nocmd ; <<>> DiG 9.8.3-P1 <<>> @ns1.dotster.com george.entenman.name +nostats +nocomments +nocmd ; (1 server found) ;; global options: +cmd ;george.entenman.name. IN A george.entenman.name. 3600 IN CNAME ge.github.io.
And soon my custom domain name was working!
FYI: My support request to Dotster.com
You may be interested in my support request to dotster.com. I didn’t (and still don’t) understand how to map the CNAME stuff onto host and points.
I need help getting my domain george.entenman.name to point to my new jekyll blog at ge.github.io.
I followed the directions under “Setting the domain in your repo” on the github documentation page (https://help.github.com/articles/setting-up-a-custom-domain-with-pages) and I have set up a CNAME file (not record), which apparently makes http://ge.github.io unavailable.
Now I have to set up the DNS. The directions under “Setting up DNS” on the github documentation page (https://help.github.com/articles/setting-up-a-custom-domain-with-pages) suggests that I set up a CNAME record for my domain.
I need help setting up the CNAME record (I think).
I apparently have to fill in a form with two fields:
Host: Points to:
But I’m not sure how to do that for george.entenman.name.
The github doc suggests that I want something like:
george.entenman.name. 3592 IN CNAME ge.github.io.
But I’m not sure how to do that?
I would really appreciate your help on this.
Thanks a lot. –ge
