GoDaddy's DNS service does not support root CNAME records. If you'd like to use your root domain instead of a subdomain (that is
example.com instead of
something.example.com), you can follow the instructions below, but using the A record configuration for registrars that do not support root CNAMEs. If you need any help, please reach out to our customer support using the chat icon in the bottom right.
First, log in to your GoDaddy account. Find your domain name and choose Manage DNS.
If you want to use the root domain (e.g., mypodcast.com), delete any A or CNAME records where the Name column contains "@". If you want to use a subdomain (e.g., podcast.mypodcast.com), delete any A or CNAME records where the Name column contains the subdomain (e.g., to use
mypodcast.example.com, you'll want to remove any A or CNAME record where the Name column contains "mypodcast"). To delete a record, click the pencil icon, then the trash can.
Click Add at the bottom of the list. For Type, choose CNAME.
Name or Host: If you want to use your domain name's root (e.g.,
mypodcast.com), set this to
@. If you want to use a subdomain (e.g.,
mypodcast.example.com), set this to the subdomain (
mypodcastfor this example).
