I have a free dyndns domain

  • mk12.gotdns.com

How can I set up a cname for

  • www.mk12.gotdns.com

to point to mk12.gotdns.com?

And how can I force the www one, so that if you navigate to mk12.gotdns.com, it will go to the www one?

I don't mean html redirecting, but I think you can do it with url rewriting somehow, something like described here. I've seen many tutorials, but they just vaguely say that you have to enter a cname record, I have no clue what file I need to put it in. Also, please see my question

about getting url rewriting to work.

1 Answer 1

you would add the following to your DNS server:

www.mk12.gotdns.com 86400 CNAME mk12.gotdns.com


  • Host: www.mk12.gotdns.com
  • TTL: 86400 (1 day in this case)
  • Record Type: CNAME
  • Data: mk12.gotdns.com
