    So I am trying to create a CNAME. I put the name in the name field under the "Add a CNAME Record" and it added the subdomain after it. I don't have a problem with that, but it added a "." (a period/dot) to the end of it making it not work correctly.

    Is this normal or is it something funky with my host? Has anyone else experienced this?

    Thanks

    Hello :)

    I was unable to reproduce this issue using the "Simple DNS Zone Editor" within cPanel. A period should be added in the actual zone, but it should not be visible on this option within the cPanel interface. I suggest consulting with your web hosting provider so they can determine the cause of this problem. It's possible they are using a custom theme, or an outdated build of cPanel.

    Thank you.
