    I want to add 'www' in front of a subdomain e.g. www.subdomain.domain.com

    My blogs are hosted on Blogger and am using GoDaddy for having custom domains.

    I have HOST @ entries for 'domain' pointing specified by blogger. The following subsdomains are configured by adding CNAME alias as follows :

    For domain (including www . domain) I have one blog. For subdomain, I am pointing it to seperate blog using above entries and 'subdomain.domain.com' works fine.

    I read articles on this issue /http://www.techproceed.com/2014/05/custom-domain-setup-on-blogger-with.html and tried adding following CNAME entry but no luck :

    How do I make 'www.subdomain.domain.com' work ?

    You can't AFAIK because www is a sub domain of domain.com

    To expand on kernow's comment, www is not actually part of a domain name, and it is itself a subdomain. The convention is to put www in front of a domain name, to access a Web site, but that is usually not actually required - it is just a common thing to do that people recognize. Usually, subdomains are meant to be accessed without being prefixed by the www, because the www would essentially be redundant - a subdomain of a subdomain, in a sense.
