How to add a CNAME to your Godaddy hosted domain?
1. Let's log in to your GoDaddy Account and move to "My products".
2. Click a "DNS" button next to see your registered domain.
3. Now, current DNS records appear. If you have an existing A and CNAME records you need to change those value by clicking on pencil icons and recreate them as below:
A record: 188.8.131.52
In the Host field put a domain to which the A record applies.
Enter here your root domain without the "www" - e.g. "mylanding.com".
CNAME record: cname.landingi.com
In the Host field put the subdomain to which the CNAME applies (for example, you'd enter "subdomain" if you're using a subdomain "subdomain.mylanding.com").
If you're using the root domain, enter "www".
4. If you do not have existing records you need to create them by clicking "Add" button with a values from above.
5. Additionally, if there are any errors when you try to save your zone file, GoDaddy will show a message explaining the errors.
You'll usually see this if you're trying to create a CNAME record for a subdomain (host) that already has an existing A record.
More often than not, it's when you try to create a CNAME record for your "www" subdomain.
To fix this up, delete the A Record for your "www" subdomain then create the CNAME record as outlined above.
If you've followed these steps an still experiencing difficulties with your custom domain, take a screenshot of your current DNS setup and contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or via chat 😉.
