  7. Under Value, paste in the unique cname ID that you received from the Unbounce Builder.
  8. Click "Save all changes" and remember that it can take up to 48 hours for newly-created records to take effect. Once your CNAME is ready, you can publish your pages where you want by adding your domain to Unbounce and pointing your landing pages to your custom domain.
