get it working local first...
add host header to IIS website
edit c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts file to include new cname record
127.0.0.1      website name
then test

next add a cname record to your dns server
Open DNS then navigate to your forward look up zone and then the correct zone right click on the zone name and select create alias cname
fillout the new name and select to original record
and test

Hi,

1. If you are using godady nameservers then login into godady domain control panel and create the following cname in DNS

blog cname mydomain.com

2. If you are using your hosting provider nameservers then update him to do the same for you and if you have DNS facility in your hosting control panel then you can easily create the above record yourself in control panel.
