Setting up a CNAME DNS

Here's a step-by-step guide on setting up a CNAME DNS record from your domain to

Log in to your domain registrar or DNS management provider's website. This is where you manage your domain's DNS settings.

Locate the DNS management section or a similar option. Look for a tab or menu item that allows you to edit DNS records for your domain.

Find the option to add a new DNS record. It might be labeled as "Add Record," "New Record," or something similar.

Choose CNAME as the type of record you want to create. If there's a dropdown menu, select CNAME from the options.

In the "Name" or "Alias" field, enter the desired alias or subdomain you want to set up. For example, if you want to create a CNAME for "," enter "subdomain" in this field.

In the "Value" or "Points to" field, enter "" as the destination domain.

Save or apply the changes. Look for a button labeled "Save," "Apply," or "Update" to confirm and save the new DNS record.

Allow some time for the changes to propagate. DNS changes can take some time to propagate across the internet, usually ranging from a few minutes to a few hours.

Once the changes have completed propagating, traffic to the alias or subdomain you specified will be redirected to "".
