Setting up a subdomain on Polywork using GoDaddy

Let’s get to it.

1. Go to your profile settings on Polywork

2. Follow the steps listed under “Setting up a custom domain for your profile”

Important: Instead of setting up your domain name, write the whole subdomain address, in my case updates.carlastabile.com

3. Go to your GoDaddy account, find your domain and head over to the Manage DNS section.

4. Remove any A record or CNAME that could block the new CNAME record that we are going to create.

In my case I’d have to delete the CNAME updates (my current subdomain), you will probably have a www CNAME that you should delete.

5. Create a new CNAME with the following values:

  • Host: your subdomain name, in my case updates
  • Points to: your custom DNS target generated by Polywork on #2
  • TTL: Custom
  • Seconds: 600
