Adding a CNAME Using DreamHost

Updated 1 week ago by John Hurley

You can add CNAME records to your domain in the DreamHost Control Panel, under Domains‐ >Manage Domains‐>DNS.

This can be useful if you run servers outside of DreamHost and you would like to direct additional names to those machines.

It should be noted that for hostnames, you should use an A record, not a CNAME. A CNAME, or alias, is appropriate for additional names that refer to that same host, as in the example above.

  1. Destination Name, enter customcname.com
