Google Apps Cnames?

    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.
