          <div>This ALIAS approach is exactly what I was looking for.
            Thank you for sharing it.! I tried to set it up and now have
            both pdns authoritative¬†and recursor servers running on my
            host and I have added following entries in my DB but when I
            try to do 'dig' on '<a href="http://example.net"
              moz-do-not-send="true">example.net</a>' to get the
            recursor to return me IP¬†address of the alias its not
            returning anything at all.</div>
          <div>I am also attaching my pdns and recursor config. Please
            check what is wrong.</div>
          <br>
        </div>

    <p>The target of the ALIAS record must actually resolve, and you
      must point pdns-authoritative at a resolver which is able to
      resolve it.<br>
    </p>
    <p>If you're using the fake data from the guide
      <a class="moz-txt-link-rfc2396E" href="https://doc.powerdns.com/authoritative/guides/alias.html"><https://doc.powerdns.com/authoritative/guides/alias.html></a>,
      with exactly "example.net" and "mywebapp.paas-provider.net", then
      it won't work, because "mywebapp.paas-provider.net" doesn't
      resolve in the real DNS.</p>
    <p>$ dig mywebapp.paas-provider.net | grep status:<br>
      ;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NXDOMAIN, id:
      3044<br>
    </p>
    <p>You could make it work, but to do so you'd have to set up your
      own recursor with a forwarding rule that forwards
      "mywebapp.paas-provider.net" back to your authoritative server,
      ignoring the delegation (or lack of it) in the public DNS.<br>
    </p>
    <p>I suggest you try first using something you know resolves, like
      "<a class="moz-txt-link-abbreviated" href="http://www.google.com">www.google.com</a>" as the target of the ALIAS record.<br>
    </p>
    <p>If you are using different data, then we can't help you, because
      you haven't shown your actual data. See:<br>
