Hi. I’d like to start a project that uses a headless WordPress install with a Nuxt front-end that’s hosted on Netlify. What I’m having trouble finding an answer to is how to handle DNS and subdomains.
Say I’ve registered mydomain.tld through a traditional LAMP host (Bluehost or whatnot). I’ll use api.mydomain.tld there for the WordPress install.
What I want is to have frontend.mydomain.tld pointing to Netlify where the Nuxt build is hosted. From my research a CNAME is the way to go. But my question is, where is the SSL cert provisioned? Netlify or the LAMP server?
Furthermore, does Netlify know to generate a new build of the site when a new post is published on the WordPress install?
Sorry if these things are covered elsewhere. The topics I find that are similar assume the domain is hosted on Netlify.
