Updating your DNS records to use a CNAME Record Follow
To update your DNS records you will make any changes from your DNS Hosting Provider (Nameserver) which is most commonly your Domain Registrar. In some cases, your DNS may be managed in a separate platform that your Domain Registrar.
The process of making this adjustment is slightly different depending on which platform your use, however below we have collected guides from some of the more common places you may have purchased your domain name from.
- Domain.com: How to Update CNAME Aliases - Canonical Name - DNS Management
- GoDaddy: Change a CNAME Record
- Network Solutions: Setting Up Your CNAME with Network Solutions
You will want to create a CNAME Record for www.myorderdesk.com which will be the best method to point any domain to MyOrderDesk. If for some reason you are unable to use a CNAME Record continue reading for additional options.
If you are using a root domain, like example.com rather than www.exmaple.com then it is not possible to use a CNAME Record for the root domain name. To reduce any issues we recommend redirecting your Root Domain name to something using a CNAME Record instead of using an A Host Record.
If none of those options are viable and you need to use an A Host Record you will adjust your IP address from 22.214.171.124 to 126.96.36.199
