  2. If it's not already selected, click the Administration tab.
  3. Click Domains. The Domain Overview page appears.
  4. From the New drop-down menu, select Create Subdomain. (If you've already created a subdomain for your website's address, skip to step six.)
  5. Enter the prefix of the address that you picked in LaunchRock, and click OK. (For example, if you chose signup.yoursite.com for your custom address, you should enter signup here.)
  6. Check the box next to the subdomain. (Example: signup.yoursite.com)
  7. From the DNS menu, select Edit DNS Settings.
  8. Click the radio button next to CNAME.
