Change CNAME records
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
This change causes a new DNS setting and will be effective from 24 to 48 hours.
