So, here's a GIF on how to create a CNAME record on GoDaddy:

Step 1: You can log in to your GoDaddy Domain Control Center.

Step 2: Select your domain to access the Domain Settings page.

Step 3: Under Additional Settings, select Manage DNS.

Step 4: Select Add under the records table.

Step 5: Under Type, select CNAME.

Step 6: Enter the details for your CNAME record:

  1. Host: The hostname, or prefix, the CNAME record will be set to.

  2. You can include a period (.) but not as the first or last character. Consecutive periods (...) are not allowed, and the host cannot exceed 25 characters or be the @ symbol.

  3. You can't use a host already assigned to an existing A, TXT, or MX record.

  4. Points to: The URL you are setting as the destination for the host. Type @ to point directly to your root domain name.

  5. TTL: Determine how long the server should cache information.

  6. The most common CNAME host is www, with the @ symbol entered for the Points to field. This will make load to the same webpage as the root domain,

Step 7: Select Save to save your new CNAME.

Please allow up to 48 hours for your changes to propagate globally.
