Take Godaddy as an Example

To begin with, you need to add a CNAME record first and let's take Godaddy as an example.

Add a CNAME (alias) record to use a domain prefix, such as blog to point your domain to another domain name, or URL, when your domain is using GoDaddy nameservers. To add a domain prefix that points to an IP address, add a subdomain instead. The most common CNAME is www, with the @ symbol entered for the Value field. This will make load to the same webpage as the root domain,

  • Name: The host name or prefix the CNAME record will be set to. You can include a period (.) but not as the first or last character. Consecutive periods (...) are not allowed, and the host cannot exceed 63 characters or be the @ symbol. You can't use a host that's already assigned to an existing A record, TXT record or MX record.
