[2.0] Creating a CNAME Record in GoDaddy

[2.0] Creating a CNAME Record in GoDaddy

IMPORTANT:

      When setting up a CNAME record, you are basically creating a subdomain


Information:

 

To better understand the concept of subdomains, let’s check the anatomy of this domain: www.wellness.com

      The “.com” is the top-level domain

      And the business name “wellness” is the second-level domain

      The part of a domain that displays before the first dot of the business name is a subdomain, that’s right! The “www” is a subdomain

      But you don’t have to use “www” as your subdomain, as you can use any word or phrase you want to create a unique web address (without having to purchase a new domain), like using the word quiz or survey

      Subdomains act as an extension of a domain that you already own

 

 

Step #1: Access Your Domain Settings

 

      Access your GoDaddy Domain Control Center

      Select your domain to access the Domain Settings page

      Scroll down to find Additional Settings, then click on Manage DNS

      Select Add under the records table

      Under Type, select CNAME

      Under Host type quiz or survey

      Under Points To enter - domains.bucket.io

      TTL defaults to one hour so you can leave it as is (TTL determines how long the server should cache information)

      Click Save to complete the process

Please note that for changes to take full effect, you must allow the time sent for the TTL

 

Step #2: Access your bucket.io account

      Click My Account from the top-right corner

      Click Custom Domains from the left-hand menu

      Click the Add custom domain green button

      A configuration guideline will pop up, click the Continue button

      Insert the domain name as [the hostname you put in GoDaddy] + [your domain name], for example: quiz.wellness.com

       Click the Create & Verify Domain button

      It should display as “Verifying”. The verification process could take up to 5 minutes and should change to “Verified” status
