Hi All,

I’m a newbie in setting up a site. Can anyone pls help how do I :

Where do I get CNAME? What is that?

And btw, what are these? A, MX, NS, CNAME, TXT. Found them under my domain host query field.

Thanks.

If you’re using Google Apps, then DreamHost automatically adds the appropriate CNAME entries to your domain. A CNAME is an alias for your domain record so Google can pretend to be your domain. The other records are A (main entry for a domain entry), MX (mail server), NS (name server), CNAME (alias), and TXT (comment).
