Google Apps Cnames?


New Member
So I'm not so good with DNS.

I'm editing the DNS settings to try to run Google Apps.

Google said I need to make a cname for any subdomain I'm using (Say, 'docs' as in and make a cname for it that points to ""

I've gone into WHM, clicked on Edit DNS Zone, and picked my domain.

I entered, in order:
[docs] [14400] [CNAME] [] won't ping... nor does it forward to google.

What am I doing wrong?

Just a wild guess - make sure you have "." after "" entry. In other words your cname record should look like:

docs 14400 IN CNAME

Hey Paul,

Was definitely missing the trailing dot.

I'll edit that, wait for the DNS to propagate and report back.
