How to add CNAME record to your DNS settings

How to achieve this using the most common DNS services in the market

Whether you are a one-person team and need to do this yourself or want to nudge your IT team or service provider in the right direction, this is how to do that depending on your DNS provider:

GoDaddy - NameCheap - Google Domains -


From zero to hero with GoDaddy

  1. Go to Sites and select the one you'll be making changes to
  2. Scroll down on the left navigation bar until you find "Domain" and click it
  3. Click on "Add custom domain", enter the desired URL and click "Add custom domain"
  4. Copy the "Value" as provided by Prezly
  5. Go to your DNS control panel in GoDaddy and select the one you wish to add records for
  6. Click "Add" and use these values:
    Type: CNAME

    : The part of the URL that goes before the actual domain
    E.g. For, you use just "test"

    Value: Use the value generated by Prezly and paste it here

    TTL: Leave as "default"
  7. Click "Add Record"

⭐That's it!⭐

What if I don't know who my DNS provider is?
