Namecheap wildcard DDNS with USG

[ Edited ]

I would like all subdomains of mydomain.com to point to my home IP e.g. host1.mydomain.com, host2.mydomain.com should point to my internet IP.


I obviously have something wrong because even though the IP address in my namecheap DNS settings is updated successfully, host1.mydomain.com resolves to the wrong IP address.

Here is my USG DDNS setup:

And here is my Namecheap setup:

My controller shows a successful update:

Like I say, everything fails to resolve correctly:

Any ideas?

Turns out that my config was correct but Namecheap's default TTL value is long. Changing the TTL to 1 minute and then waiting for replication updated all my hosts.
