Wild Card Records

What are Wild Card Records?

Wildcard records allow an administrator to point all non-existent records within a domain to a single target host. Any record not explicitly defined in the domain name, will resolve to the target of the wild card record. It is important to note, a wild card record is not inclusive of the root record of the domain.

A wild card record can be defined as an A Record or a CNAME Record and have a * in the name field.
