How to setup a CNAME record for your domain using the DNS editor

CNAME (Canonical Name) records specify that a domain name is an alias of another “canonical” domain name. It can be used in different ways.

For example: It can be used to point multiple CNAMEs to one A Record (IP) allowing easy management. Or you can also point a domain or subdomain to some external domain (like in Blogger integration). You can Add/Update CNAME Records for your domain name from the free DNS management panel available with DomainKing.NG.

To Add or Update the CNAME Records of your domain, you need to do the following:

1). Login to DomainKing Client panel.

2). In your client area click on “Domains” and then “My Domains” from the top menu bar.

Go to My Domains in DomainKing.NG client panel
