How can I add a CNAME hostname record which doesn't have my domain name automatically stuck on the end of it?
I am currently working on pointing a domain name previously associated with Network Solutions toward my digital ocean droplet. But, the CNAME hostname that Network Solutions is giving me is: mail.[my domain name].netsolmail.net and smtp.[my domain name].netsolmail.net. However, with the DO program, the hostname I want (mail.[mydomainname].netsolmail.net) automatically results in (mail.[mydomainname].netsolmail.net.[mydomainname]).
