How do I add a CNAME (Canonical Name) record?

Last Updated: Jun 08, 2017 08:08AM CEST

A CNAME record points a subdomain/host to a server name.
 
Please follow the steps below to add a CNAME record:

  1. In your EuroDNS account go to DOMAIN NAMES > ACTIVE.
  2. Move the cursor over the concerned domain and click on Manage on the right.
  3. Click on MANAGE ZONE.
  4. Click on NEW RECORD.
  5. Select CNAME (Canonical Name) in the Type dropdown menu.
  6. In the Host field enter the host or subdomain.
  7. In the Canonical Name field enter the name of the server. (Please enter a “.” at the end of the server name if the server is outside of the concerned domain.)
  8. Click on SUBMIT.
  9. Click on SAVE ZONE.


Note: DNS changes usually need up to 24 hours to propagate throughout the entire Internet.

Important: This option is only available if the domain is using EuroDNS name servers (default name servers: ns1.eurodns.com / ns2.eurodns.com / ... or Professional DNS name servers: ns1.prodns.net / ns2.prodns.net / ....).
