How To Add More Than One Record Type Of The Same Name

To help keep DNS records organised and efficient, AWS does not accept duplicate records with the same Name that are the same Type. For example you cannot have:

Name

Type

Value

example

CNAME

www.test-one.com

example

CNAME

www.test-two.com

Instead you should add the additional record to the existing record on a new line within the "value" by hitting the enter key:

Name

Type

Value

example

CNAME

www.test-one.com

www.test-two.com

How to add an A Record With A Name Of "@"

When adding DNS records to a domain, the name field is always preceded by the domain. For example, if I have a record with the name of "testing", it will render as "testing.mydomain.com".

The @ symbol is sometimes used in DNS record name fields to define the root. For example, if I have a record with the name of "@", it will render as "mydomain.com".

AWS does not accept records with the name value containing "@" for root. Instead, leave the name field blank. For example, if I have a record with the name of "" (blank), it will render as "mydomain.com".
