If you use GoDaddy for your registrar and you use them for DNS hosting (Total DNS), you can follow the steps below to get started:

STEP 1: Under the manage domain screen, click the "Total DNS Control & MX Records" link. If you do not have this link, it means GoDaddy is not controlling your DNS and you'll need to follow different instructions.


STEP 2: Click "Add new CNAME Record" For the Alias name, enter, for the points to host name, enter



STEP 3: Configure your tender to respond to the custom domain. Enter in your custom domain under the Site Settings portion of the admin.
