  3. Select the domain you’re modifying from the drop-down box.
  4. Scroll down to the heading named Add DNS Record

  6. Leave the TTL field at it’s default setting
  7. Select CNAME, from the drop-down labeled Type
  8. In the Points To field, enter lb.site.mobi
  9. Click on the Add Record button to create the record
