Point subdomains to Tumblr blogs

  • Posted July 14, 2014

I need to point and to separate Tumblr blogs. This was set up and working for us while we were on shared hosting with another company.

I’ve managed to set everything up server config-wise, but I am failing to point these two subdomains to Tumblr.

Apparently all that needs to be done is to add two separate A or CNAME records as per Tumblr’s instructions, but I don’t have any luck with that.

Any help with this will be appreciated!


I’m having trouble with this as well.

The CNAME records should look like this:

The same goes for, just replace “blog” with “faves”.
