You can enter that in on our DNS page:

How do I set up DNS for my domain?

To set up DNS for your domain, please follow these steps:

  1. Sign in to your Dynadot account.
  2. Select "My Domains" from the left-side menu bar and click "Manage Domains" in the drop-down.
  3. Check the box next to your domain name(s) and click on the "Bulk Action" button.
  4. Choose "DNS Settings" from the "Bulk Action" list.
  5. On the DNS page, select the "Custom DNS" setting from the top drop-down menu.
  6. Choose the "Record Type" you want to use from the drop-down menu, then enter in the IP Address or Target Host of your web server in the first text box (NOTE: You must enter a record for the root domain, which is the "Domain Record (required)" section).
  7. If you have an Email Server or MX Record available for your domain email, enter in the hostname and the distance (otherwise known as priority) in the subsequent text boxes. You can also specify subdomain A records, CNAME records, SRV records, and TXT records.
  8. Press the "Save DNS" button to save your changes.

Please be aware that it might take some time for your name server changes to propagate.

I dont get it, sry. I have to verify at first...
General Instructions for creating CNAME in any Domain Manager:

The general steps to validate your Domain using CNAME method are listed below. If your Specific provider is listed above, you can use the link to follow the specific instructions for the provider.
Log in to your account with your Domain registrar. (Your Domain’s Administrative DNS Host).
Open your Domain Management Page to update the DNS Records (DNS Manager or DNS Control Pane or Advanced DNS editor).
Locate the option to add CNAME records (Generally found under DNS Records, you can also consult the help page of your registrar in case you are not clear).
In the Name/ Host/ Alias/ CNAME add the code generated in Zoho zb********
In the Value/ Points To/ Destination field add domain.zoho.com
The added CNAME will typically look like below:
Name/ Host/ Alias/ CNAME
Value/ Points To/ Destination
zb********
domain.zoho.com
If the TTL is editable, reduce the TTL to 300 seconds or the minimum possible value recommended by your Registrar.
Click Save or Add Record option to save the CNAME Records.

Or can you maybe help me and add these values yourself?

We would need the values to be able to do that for you -  "In the Name/ Host/ Alias/ CNAME add the code generated in Zoho zb********"

If you do not want to post that here, please email it to us.   You can also refer to the instructions below:

How do I create a CNAME?

A CNAME record is short-hand for Canonical Name record, which allows you to assign a domain or subdomain to another address or hostname. CNAME records should only be used if you can't use an A record.

To create a CNAME, please follow these steps:

  1. Sign in to your Dynadot account.
  2. Select "My Domains" from the left-side menu bar and click "Manage Domains" in the drop-down.
  3. Check the box next to the domain name(s) and select "DNS Settings" from the "Bulk action" drop-down menu.
  4. On the new page, select the "Custom DNS" option from the drop-down menu.
  5. In the "Domain Record (required)" section at the top, select "Forward" as the record type and enter "http://www.yourdomainname.ext" as the "Target Host".
  6. Under the "Subdomain Record (optional)" field, enter "www" as the subdomain, select "CNAME" as the record type and enter the CNAME record given to you.
  7. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on the "Save DNS" button to save your changes.

Please be aware that it might take some time for your changes to propagate.

A CNAME may be necessary for your domain to work with the following: Blogger, Blogspot, TypePad, iweb, MobileMe, zenfolio, ning.

Hi, also having problem verifying my ZOHO mail domain ownership -  I cant find the correct place where to add In the Value/ Points To/ Destination field.
Can you send step by step instruction because none of the steps explained in ZOHO mail for verification of domain seems to apply:

How did you sort it out?

I'm stuck too! I don't understand where the Value/ Points To/ Destination code is placed for Zoho email. Can someone provide a step by step instruction that is simple to understand? Any help would be appreciated.
