CNAMES and Subdomains


I’m using Host Gator.   I’m a little confused. I’ve added a CNAME and updated that info in the cPanel but should I also go to subdomains and create a subdomain?


Stuart is right but just keep in mind that it can take up to 48h for the CNAME changes to propagate. 


I have multiple landing pages. Do I need a separate cname record for each?  If not, how would I set this up?  Thanks.


Hi Robert,

No that’s not necessary, just by adding a cname and pointing it to you’ve done enough to tell browsers what they need to know to resolve the dns correctly and direct your traffic.

Kind regardS
