How to access the DNS settings of your domain
Note: The following steps have to be completed on the DNS settings of your domain. For assistance with these steps, we recommend contacting your hosting provider. 
  1. Log in to your domain provider (usually on your hosting).
  2. Find the DNS settings for your domain. You can find instructions on doing this by searching “DNS settings” + your hosting provider's name on any search engine (such as Google). 
  3. Create a DNS record with CNAME type and fill out the Name and Value fields given to you on your Partnero account.

Remember that hosting providers may refer to the Name and Value TXTs differently. They can be referred to as:

  • Name and Host
  • Domain and Value
  • Domain and Host

In some cases, the CNAME record might be referred to as the Domain Alias record.
