Introduction

    • NOTE: You need to login to your hosting services account portal to add a CNAME. This change cannot be completed from your Dozuki site.

    • Select the Domain for which you want to create a new CNAME Record.

    • Enter the custom URL that you want to use for your Dozuki site in the Name field. This is the same URL that you entered in the custom domain box on your Dozuki site.

    • You may need to include a Period at the end of your custom URL. For example, we entered guides.example.com. Notice the period at the end of the URL.

    • The final step is to enter your Dozuki site URL. This is the URL you created when you first signed up for Dozuki. Our Dozuki URL is example.Dozuki.com

    • Click Add CNAME Record

    • Now wait. After making the change, DNS changes may take 24 hours to propagate to servers all over the world. However, the change usually takes effect in less than an hour.
