DNS instructions for WildWestDomains

 

Adding or Editing CNAME Records

A CNAME (Alias) record points to an A (Host) record. You can create multiple CNAME records and point them to an A record. The most common CNAME records are the subdomains www and ftp.

CNAME records make your DNS data easier to manage. If you change the IP address of an A record, all CNAME records pointed to that A record automatically follow the new IP address. The alternative solution, multiple A records, is not as simple as using CNAME records.

You can click Restore Defaults in the CNAME (Alias) section of the Zone File Editor to restore the default MX records for your domain name. For more information, see Restoring a Domain Name’s Zone File Records.

To Add a CNAME Record

  • Go to the Zone File Editor for the domain name you want to update
  • Click Add New Record. The Add DNS Record window displays
  • From the Record type list, select CNAME (Alias)
  • Complete the following fields:
  • Enter an Alias Name
  • Click OK
  • Click Save Zone File, and then click OK
  • The new CNAME record displays in the CNAME (Alias) section

If you're not able to add the CNAME please send this email to the WildWestDomains support desk.
