To enable the VideoRankMe platform to sit within your domain, you will need to update your website’s domain settings. This is a simple procedure that only requires the adding of a CNAME record on your DNS. It cab then take up to 24 hours for your sub-domain to propagate. You can check out the video or follow the steps below.
Note: If the DNS changes have not taken effect within 24 hours contact your DNS host provider to determine the cause.
First you will need to go to your DNS hosting provider, in this case we are using examples from Name Cheap. If you are having trouble adding the CNAME or accessing your settings you may need to contact your provider for assistance.
Once you are logged in choose the domain that you want to add the record to by clicking manage.
On some providers you will then have to click into Advanced DNS
Once there, choose "Add New Record"
Choose your record type, in this case it is CNAME
As can be seen in the fields below the host is the sub part of your subdomain (in this case blog.absolutempo.com). And the value is videorankme.com.
Some DNS providers will use the term "Name" instead of "Host"
Once the information has been filled into the "Host" field and the "Value" field, click save and wait up to 24 hours for the record change to propagate.
The most common subdomains tend to be blog, video or vlog.
Below are listed guides on how to add a CNAME for several different DNS providers:
