I have a Rails app deployed to fly.io that I want to use my domain name for. However, both domain providers that I have domains with: IONOS and Hover do not allow me to make CNAME records with @ as the hostname. Instead, they say I must use the redirect functionality. This makes it so the domain name redirects to the fly.dev url however I want the url to always be the custom one.
I also tried to create an A record but the ip address of my fly.io application doesn’t seem to work.
I feel like I’m missing something in this whole process and don’t know what I’m doing.
