Normally users cannot create a CNAME or Alias record for their domain apex. For example, users can create a CNAME record for xxxxx.yourdomain.com but couldn’t for just domain.com. However, users now have the ability to create these records which are referred to as ANAME records. Please note that ANAME records can be created with all easyDNS service levels.
To add an ANAME record please do the following:
1. Log into your easyDNS account.
2. Click on DNS.
Note that you can also click on CNAME from your Domain Administration page to directly go to the CNAME portal:
3. Click on the EDIT icon for CNAME/ALIAS RECORDS.
4. Since ANAME Records are for the root domain you will want to enter ‘@’ under HOST and the ADDRESS in the corresponding field.
5. Click on NEXT.
6. Confirm changes
Your ANAME record should now be in place.
