DNS Issue with Square Space + Self Hosting

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://bananaknights.com

Good afternoon!

When I started with Squarespace everything in my DNS records worked smoothly!

I created the A Record for my self hosted server, pointed my static IP to it and after 72 hours life was good!

However, I think I may have something wrong my with DNS records now has my main site bananaknights.com will resolve but the sub domains I have setup in IIS are not resolving properly. 

I can hit them internally if I do a quick and dirty host edit, so I do not believe the issue is with the IIS bindings. 

(I have these setup using HTTPS and  HTTP with an HTTP redirect to HTTPS. Bindings are pointed at * and the local IP of the server)

Currently, the only DNS entry I have in my Squarespace domain settings is the A record that points to my static IP assigned to me with my ISP. 

The ISP is not blocking any ports, and all of the ports I need to have open are open. I also checked my firewall and it's not being blocked by the firewall. 

I'm not sure what happened to the rest of the records (if there were default ones put in by square space, and if they are needed) but maybe I am just missing some default records to make this work? 

Do not hesitate to ask me for anymore information if you attempt to assist me. 


I appreciate your time, and thank you very much!
