Follow these instructions to set up a CNAME in GoDaddy
- Log in to your account at www.godaddy.com.
- Open the Domains tab and select My Domain Names. You'll be directed to the Domain Manager page.
- Click the domain that you'd like to mask.
- Under the “DNS Manager” section select manage or launch.
- Click Add New CNAME Record in the box labeled CNAMES (alias). Often time this button says “Add Record.”
- For the “Record Type” select CNAME Alias. For the Name or Alias Name field enter in the letters for the sub domain portion of your domain. If you wanted to create the sub domain for masking m.domain.com then you would want to enter in “m” as the Alias name or name. For the “Points to Host Name” section enter in m.brickandmobile.com or m.cloud-host.mobi. For TTL please select one hour.
- Click OK, and then click OK again.
- You have now created a new sub domain and within 48 hours you will be able to see the data as you would on e-dasher.com.
Official “Add DNS Record” instructions from Godaddy:
CNAME records (also known as alias records) point a sub domain to an existing A (host) record so that the domain points to the appropriate IP address. Entering "@" for the host name is the same as entering your domain name, including the "www".
The Points To Host Name should be defined as your domain name (i.e., "www.domainnamegoeshere.com") or "@" (Entering "@" will automatically insert your domain name as the host name for the CNAME Record).
The Alias field should be the sub domain of your top-level domain the CNAME record points to your domain. For example: If you want the CNAME record to point "www" within your domain to "www.domainnamegoeshere," you should enter "www" in the Alias field and "www.domainnamegoeshere.com" in the Points To field.
If you want the CNAME record to point "email" within your domain to "email.domainnamegoeshere," enter "email" as the Alias and "email.domainnamegoeshere.com" as the Points To Host Name.
