Edit a subdomain

Now that you understand what a subdomain is, you can edit a non-forwarded subdomain that points to an IP address. If you want to forward a subdomain, see Forward a subdomain

If your domain is registered at another company, see the Domains registered at another company section below for instructions.

To edit a subdomain

  1. Log in to your GoDaddy account.
  2. On your product list next to Domains, click the Text Icon (Plus sign button) to expand the list:
  3. Expand Domains List

  4. Next to the domain you want to manage, under the Action section, click on the Manage DNS button:
  5. Manage DNS Button

  6. In the Records section, next to the A record for the subdomain you want to edit, click Click the pencil icon to edit (the pencil icon).
  7. Edit any of the following fields:
    • Name: Enter the subdomain you want to use. Type @ to map the record directly to your domain name, including the www.
    • Value: Enter the IP address you want the subdomain to point to.
    • TTL: Select how long the server should cache the information.
  8. Click Save.

Updating the IP address where a subdomain resolves does not update the subdomain's forwarding.

DNS can take up to 48 hours to propagate.
