SSL setup (with Loopia domain editor), what means adding CNAME

Hi, I wonder if anyone can help me with the setup

I launched an app, and created certs.

flyctl certs create "*"

wildcard because www already existed and people use it.

But now I do not understand what

2: Adding an CNAME record to your DNS service which reads:

    CNAME =>

means, and how I can do that.

I have a DNS web editor from my provider, but I am not sure about where to place that CName, there is a * and a @ section, various others for protocols, and the www one

Any idea how that could work, anyone using with Loopia (sweden)

update, does now work, but not, and now I wonder if this is because of the wildcard domain, or some other issue

Figured it out, needed both, and now everything works!

Love! years of problems with (previous solution) for the root domain are solved. (so far only www was working due do, I do not know, cname flattening or what explanation I got)

If even I can set up , everyone can do that :slight_smile:

Wow nice. Good job figuring that out. DNS is incredibly confusing and I have to relearn it every time I make a change like that.
