05:59<ibrahim>anyone ?
06:00<linbot>If you have a question, feel free to just ask it -- someone's always willing to help. If you don't get a response right away, be patient! You may want to read
06:02<ibrahim>I am trying to pay via mastercard debit card, but i get error We encountered a problem while adding your payment method. Please try again.
06:03<Robdgreat>first thing: don't share any private information in here, as it's a public channel. second thing:
06:03<linbot>Users with ops are employees of Linode, and know what they're talking about. The rest of us are the ever-so-helpful(?) community. Official Linode contact information:
06:03<Robdgreat>not that you have shared anything private, just letting you know
06:03<Robdgreat>ibrahim: have you submitted a support ticket?
06:04<ibrahim>Do i have to? I mean its 2022. Technology has gone so far
06:05<Robdgreat>This isn't support. It's community chat
06:05<Robdgreat>so yeah
06:05<Robdgreat>also, irc has been around since the 90s, so I don't know what you're getting at
06:06<Robdgreat>I knew that would pull someone out of the woodwork to correct me
06:06<Robdgreat>thank you
06:06<Unit193>Sorry. :3
06:10<@pwoods>ibrahim: Most likely, you'll want to contact your bank. We work with a payment processor for payments. We only have so much insight into why a card was declined, and even then, we can't force the payment processor to accept a card.
06:10<ibrahim>ok, thanks guys for your time

11:23<srw7_>How long does it usually take to get email ports opened? I've been a linode user for decades but this is the first new account where I've encountered this (necessary) complication.
11:23<@_brian>it depends on the size of our support queue
11:23<@_brian>can you pass me your ticket # srw7_?
11:25<srw7_>as always, amazing support. Thank you @_brian and Linode.
11:26<millisa>!point _brian
11:26<linbot>millisa: Point given to _brian. (57) (Biggest fan: millisa, total: 10)
11:27<srw7_>ah, didn't know I could do that. I so rarely have any issue I really don't watch this channel very often.
11:27<Al567>Hi! If I have domain, for example '', and I want any possible subdomain of it to point to a single Linode, what FQDN do you assign this Linode? Also planning on having a wildcard ssl from let's encrypt installed on the Linode. Thanks!
11:27<srw7_>!point _brian
11:27<linbot>srw7_: Point given to _brian. (58) (Biggest fan: millisa, total: 10)
11:28<@_brian>thank yous

11:29<@_brian>make sure your domain record looks like "" and not "" though
11:29<millisa>and I just noticed - that image in that doc is silly.
11:30<@_brian>AAAA? haha
11:30<millisa>yeah. I am amused.
11:30<@_brian>good eye. i'll tell the docs folks
11:30<millisa>The new slideout shows 'Create A/AAAA Record' for that screen.
11:32<Nivex>Create [endless scream] Record :P

11:36<Al567>thanks for the reference, seen it before and I don't think it solves the problem. If a user visits I don't want them to be redirected. The url should still be and it should point to my Linode.
11:37<@_brian>that sounds like a web server configuration thing
11:38<@_brian>setting the name server records just determines the IP address to which the domain resolves
11:38<@_brian>redirection would be caused by apache/nginx
11:39<millisa>or possibly by your code
11:40<@_brian>yeah, i shouldn't have assumed. also that^
11:44<millisa>in nginx, something like * in the server_name line and a 'root /var/whatever/$http_host/webdir' would do a dynamic document root based on http host.
11:44<millisa>(probably worth checking for security concerns when letting a client determine a path like that)
11:45<millisa>the whole host header injection thing
11:45<Al567>If I set up a domain (domains/create) to ''*" I should be able to point it to a single Linode - right?
11:46<Al567>then the should be directed to that Linode?
11:46<millisa>If you set a wildcard to point there
11:46<millisa>the non-wildcard entries should take precedence when being served in dns
11:47<Al567>so in creating this Linode - what would be its FQDN?
11:47<millisa>you could even have a wildcard dns entry point to the linode, have the linodes web config set to only do something meaningful with specific vhosts, and have the default vhost serve up a 'i dont know about that name' type site
11:48<millisa>like the hostname? set it whatever makes you happy
11:48<millisa>the linode's name doesn't have to have anything to do with the vhosts that point to it
11:48<millisa>it's common for it *not* to match even
11:48<millisa>My server only serves websites for *
11:50<Al567>I'll give it a try!
11:50<Al567>thanks for helping out

15:04<Cromulent>ok so I was just looking around for some domain names on Porkbun and came across domain names using something called handshake which I have never heard about
15:04<Cromulent>does anyone know anything about this at all?
15:05<Cromulent>it seems pretty interesting

16:15<bss>from what I've seen of handshake domains, they managed to reimplement the idea of registering domain names by being incompatible with DNS, in the name of "decentralization" and the blockchain (because of course), but you still need to pay another entity to register and/or renew, so all that seems to be accomplished is thumbing your noise at ICANN?
16:15<bss>your nose*
16:15<packetcat>pretty much
16:16<@_brian>somebody has to find a use for all this blockchain tech
16:16<bss>someone needs to juice their "investment"
16:16<@_brian>what else are we all mining for
16:17<Nivex>f__k blockchain
16:17<millisa>mining for the factory. it must grow.
16:31<packetcat>uhh the thing where the IPv6 address disappears on a Linode happened to me again, on a Dallas Linode
16:35<packetcat>will open a ticket in a few
17:01<packetcat>its basically the same thing that happened to a Newark Linode in December 2021
