2. In the “Domains” section, click on the “Zone Editor” Icon.

Under “Domains“, you can see many options below the “Actions” text.

3. Click on “CNAME Record” and a small window will open. Enter the required details in it.

Name: Enter the name you wish to add, such as “www” and cPanel will automatically add a domain name like www.example.com.
CNAME: Enter domain name.


Now click on the”Add a CNAME Record” button.

If the record is added successfully, you will see a success message. The DNS propagation can take up to 24 hours.
