Need specific help with domain-mapping plugin

I am having trouble understanding how to set-up CNAME and ANAME for the actual domain I want to map is
I am a newbie and using this plugin for the first time.
Just need to know: The NAME and the CNAME I should put in the form in the Cpanel advanced DNS records.
Once you provide, I'll be able to do this from now on for any other subdomain.

    Hi Dave.

    You will need to find your DNS editor.

    You will be editing or adding an A record.

    So If its there click on EDIT for the main A record, and change that IP address to the dedicated IP for your Multisite install.

    If you are setting up A record for the first time then the type is “A” A Record. Then enter the IP Address.

    you can also use Addon Domains and Parked Domains. They must point to the root of your multisite installation in order to function correctly.

    This method also does not require a dedicated IP address.

    However its not recommended you use this method for client websites as you will have to manually control their DNS.

    If you would prefer to park the domain you can see your specific hosts support information on that process.

    Please let me know if you have any questions :slight_smile:
