Alternative solution (Using Cloudflare)

If you are unable to add a CNAME record with your current domain name registrar, follow the steps described below:

  1. Sign up for a free Cloudflare Account
  2. Verify your email address and login into your Cloudflare Account
  3. Click on add a site button
  4. Enter your domain name and click on add site button
  5. You will be redirected to select a plan page. Scroll down and click on the Free $0 plan, and click on the continue button
  6. Review DNS records, and complete the setup.
  7. Once you complete the setup, you will be able to see nameserver details. Copy the nameservers and go to the domain name registrar to update the nameservers.

This process may take some time. Cloudflare will send you a mail once your domain name is connected with Cloudflare. Once connected, log in to your Cloudflare dashboard and follow the above-shared instructions.
