  5. Enter the Name 
    • Type the name of your chosen subdomain
    • For example, if you picked "" as your custom domain, enter "promos"
    • Or, if you're using a root domain such as "" then you'll want to enter "www" here, cPanel automatically fills in the rest of your URL
  6. Enter " for CNAME
  7. Click Add CNAME Record

CNAMEs can take up to 48 hours to propagate. Once it's ready, you can ensure your pages are published where you want by making sure your domain is added to Unbounce and your landing pages are pointing to your custom domain.
