Can I add a wildcard A Record?

Hi,

 

I have an A record entry in one my managed domain and it is pointed to some value.

I need help in solving the below.

 

Let's say for an example A record name is 'kachwa' and is pointing to 1.1.1.1 , I want my clients to be able to resolve to 1.1.1.1 with any A record name, it can be  suresh.domainname.com or louis.domainname.com, can this be achieved?

It sounds like you are asking about a 'wildcard' A record, this is not available with GoDaddy DNS.

Hi @SureshKachwa. Thanks for being part of GoDaddy Community! I hate to contradict @Nate, but this is possible in some circumstances. I depend more on the IP address you're pointing to. For instance, if you have a cPanel account, you should be able to create a wildcard DNS entry. To do this, you'd add "*" as your host (see images below).
