1. Log into your cPanel account. (e.g., www.example.com/cPanel )


2. In the Domains section, click on the Zone Editor icon.


3. Under Domains, you can see many options below the Actions text.



4. Click on CNAME Record, and a small window will open. Please enter the required details in it.

Name: Enter the name you wish to add, such as www, and cPanel will automatically add a domain name like www.example.com.
CNAME: Enter the domain name.

 

5. Now click on the Add a CNAME Record button.


If the record is added successfully, you will see a success message.

Note: It may take anywhere from 12 to 24 hours for the changes to take effect worldwide.
