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:

subdomain -> ghs.google.com
www -> ghs.google.com   

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 and tried adding following CNAME entry but no luck:

www.subdomain  ->  subdomain.domain.com

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

I'm not familiar with this "arrow" -> syntax you're using but a CNAME record should point to an A record, not another CNAME: www.subdomain.domain.com CNAME ghs.google.com – Digital Chris Feb 10 '14 at 18:36

As you mentioned GoDaddy the subdomains there can be managed using web control panel - as enabled using Hosted Domains link in the menu using Add Subdomain link, see more here support.godaddy.com
