    DNS Question - Magnify.net
    I've been playing around with Magnify.net, and it's a very cool video service. They allow you to build your own "channel" and choose what video content to put on it...plus kick-back 50% of revenue. check it out if you haven't already!

    I would like to test out putting a Magnify.net channel on an old domain I'm not using...they have instructions on that here: http://www.magnify.net/support/faq/alias

    I think I need to set-up a CNAME alias in order to do this, but not totally sure. (those instructions are a little "greek" to me. i'm not too familiar with DNS settings)

    Can anyone shed some light on how to set this up in a Cpanel hosting account? I've looked at the edit DNS stuff in Cpanel, but I'm not totally sure what to do...

    You would need access to WebHost Manager to do this. If you can access WHM go to DNS Functions > Edit DNS Zone > at bottom of page under "Add new entries below this line" add video IN CNAME live.magnify.net. If you do not have access to WHM contact your host to set this up for you.

    thanks for your help - i think i've figured this out for doing this on a subdomain like video.domain.com - but what if you wanted to just put it on domain.com and basically make magnify.net power the entire site?
