How and where can I enter a CNAME entry?
What is a CNAME record?
CNAME records can be used to forward DNS requests to a different name without specifying an IP address.
Through your dd24 account a CNAME record can be created exclusively for subdomains (such as for www.).
How to configure a CNAME
Please click on DOMAINS All Domains.
Click on the domain
Then click on the domain you want to configure.
Create or select subdomain
Through the pull-down menu at the top right you can create a new subdomain or - if it exists already - select one.
As soon as you have created or selected a subdomain, new settings are available such as the item CNAME Settings.
Please enter your CNAME in the line provided and click on Verify changes.
If the check was successful please click on Save changes to save your CNAME entry.
- The CNAME entry must be specified as a valid hostname.
- There is merely a syntax check. The functionality of the CNAME forwarding is not tested.
