Edit a subdomain
A subdomain is a type of DNS record that adds a prefix to your domain, such as blog.mycoolnewbusiness.com. You can edit an existing subdomain that uses an IP address in your DNS zone file at any time. If you need a subdomain that connects to another domain name, you'll need to add a CNAME record instead.
- Sign in to your GoDaddy Domain Portfolio. (Need help logging in? Find your username or password.)
- Select an individual domain to access the Domain Settings page.
- Select DNS to view your DNS records.
- Select the checkboxes next to the DNS records you need to edit and then select Edit.
- Select Edit next to an individual record to edit a single record instead.
- Enter the details for your A record subdomain.
- Name: The hostname or prefix of the record, without the domain name such as blog or shop.
- Value: The IP address the A record will point to. This is commonly the IP address for a hosting account.
- Select Add another value to add more IP addresses to this A record.
- TTL (Time to Live): The amount of time the server should cache information before refreshing. The default setting is 1 hour.
- Select Save to confirm your edits. If you added multiple records at the same time, select Save All Records.
- If your domain has Domain Protection, you'll need to verify your identity. If you've had 2-step verification (2SV) turned on for at least 24 hours, enter the code we sent via SMS, or enter the code from your authenticator app. Otherwise, enter the one-time password we sent to your registrant email address.
Most DNS changes take effect within an hour but could take up to 48 hours to update globally.
- Add a new A record subdomain or delete DNS records you no longer need.
- Create a DNS template to quickly apply DNS records to your domains.
- Get started with professional email and stay connected to your community.
