For example, we will modify the score of the www subdomain using a CNAME.

1. Enter the feature "Advanced DNS"

2. Identify if there is already a record for the subdomain to change and if it is the case, delete it.

(Generally, there is already a type A record).

3. In the Address field, enter the subdomain name

4. In the canonical name field, indicate the new CNAME record value

(Necessarily a name and not an IP)

5. Click on <OK>

6. The new CNAME record is added to the DNS records list

Warning.gif This change causes a new DNS setting and will be effective from 24 to 48 hours.
