  3. Scroll down to Additional Settings and select Manage DNS.

  4. On the DNS Management page, at the bottom of the Records section, click Add.

  5. Select CNAME from the Type dropdown.

  6. Complete the required fields:Host: The host name, or prefix, the CNAME record will be set to. You can include a period (.) but not as the first or last character. Consecutive periods (...) are not allowed. The host cannot exceed 25 characters or be the @ symbol. In order to avoid confusion we recommend using a host name such as fb or ads. Host names are what are commonly referred to as "sub domains" for instance the app in is a host name for DNS purposes.
