Applying for *.domain.com


#1

How do I apply for a wildcard subdomain? I requested approval for http://qaugc.bk-views.com and it was approved but when I try a different subdomain it doesn’t work. I need http://*.bk-views.com to work for Twitter Cards. Please let me know what I need to do to get approved. Thanks!

Hi Rachel, You should submit the root domain (format e.g., *.testdomain.com) in order to incorporate subdomains. Please feel free to resubmit through the cards validator in this format. If you continue to experience issues you can log a ticket at https://support.twitter.com/forms/platform

You can submit your root domain through the cards validator tool at https://dev.twitter.com/docs/cards/validation/validator

Has the validator changed in this regard since this post?

The current validator appears to require a valid URL in order to fetch meta tags and present the “Request whitelisting” button. Entering wildcards (e.g. *.mycompany.com) or root domains (e.g. mycompany.com, where implementation is actually at domain1.mycompany.com and domain2.mycompany.com) just gives an error (“ERROR: Fetching the page failed […]”) due to being an invalid URL.

We are currently whitelisted at something like “testing.mycompany.com”, and would like to extend that to production at, e.g. “*.cloud.mycompany.com”.

How can we go about doing this?

Thanks!
