How to Add a Domain Pointing to Multiple IP Addresses?
The first step to add a domain pointing to multiple IP addresses is pointing your domain to existing wildcard IPs. Create a static A record for your domain that you want to point to Kinsta Nameservers.
The A records should point to the same IP address as your wildcard A records. For an example see the image below.
Then you need to verify your subdomain. To do that, go to MyKinsta and click on the Next button in the Verify Domain modal.
Then you will be asked to add one or more TXT records to confirm the ownership of the subdomain.
👉 You must then add the TXT record to your DNS provider. When you have completed adding it click on Ok, I have done it in MyKinsta.
👉 Now you should point your subdomain to Kinsta by clicking on the Point Domain button. You can now find the Kinsta Site IP address here.
👉 Go to your DNS provider and delete the A records of your subdomain. Then add the A record pointing to your Kinsta Site IP address.
👉 Once the DNS has propagated, you can see a checkmark next to your subdomain in MyKinsta.
