Point subdomains to Tumblr blogs

July 14, 2014 7.8k views

I need to point blog.sprawsm.com and faves.sprawsm.com 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!

The CNAME records should look like this:

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

  • Thanks a lot Kamal!

    I thought I will get an email notification about answers, but I actually ended up here via Google search. :)

  • No problem! We’re working on community notifications and should have them implemented soon :)
