a: here is my goal: entering subdomain.domain1.com in browser address bar should bring the visitor to domain2.com
b: That is what I did: created cname record this way:
record name (alias name): subdomain.domain1.com ; Alias for: domain2.com
c: using various dns online testing sites and your "trace dns delegation" testing, all show:
Received authoritative (AA) response:
-> Answer: CNAME-record for subdomain.domain1.com = domain2.com
-> Answer: A-record for domain2.com = "correct IP"
My Problem: entering into the browser address bar subdomain.domain1.com will bring me to the homepage of domain1.com with an error message and NOT to domain2.com as it should be.
From the DNS point of view it seems to be correct, but why is the visitor request send to domain1.com and not to the alias address of domain2.com?
I know it is not a direct DNS problem, but anyone any clue why I am still ending up at domain1.com ?
Any Help very much appreciated.
