www.hypnobirthing.kiwi.nz (loads as Site Not Published)
I originally setup the domain name (1st Domains) with 1 x A-record and 1 x CNAME for the www as per most of my websites, but after 3 hours only the root domain worked, and not the www. After a bit of research, I realised that Weebly requires 2 x A-records with their IP address (root name and www) and so quickly made the change. After 48 hours the www version still was not working and so I contact Weebly support, who confirmed 2 x A-records was correct, and to wait 72 hours.
After 80 hours still no joy. I contacted 1st Domains, who tested and verified that all was resolving. They believe it is a Weebly issue. Weebly eventually responded that they do not deal with subdomains with A-records, and to change it back to root name as A-record and www as CNAME, my original setup. Another 3 days and the same result. They then asked me to do a 301 redirect, but I cannot do this for only the www subdomain with 1st Domains.
On Friday they advised there is an issue with .kiwi.nz domains, and ask that I setup 3 x A-records: root, www and * wildcard. This also did not work. This morning they advice that I change my registrar with one that allows redirects on subdomains (they suggested Cloudns.net which I am not comfortable with).
So my questions are:
- Is there a NZ Registrar that allows redirects on subdomains - I have accounts with 1st Domains, domains4less and TCPP, but from what I can see none allows this?
- has anyone else had trouble with .kiwi.nz domains?
- is 301 redirect the correct answer? or is there something I am missing?
FYI - The Weebly site is a paid subcription, not a free site. I have uploaded a screenshot of the current dns records settings.
