Heroku app CNAME on Go Daddy

I'm Assuming:

  1.  you registered your domain at GoDaddy
  2. you have actual Heroku app that works on
  3.  done everything correctly from 
  4.  you have added your domain and www subdomain to heroku app like this:

$ ~/cd my_app
$ gem install heroku
$ heroku domains:add
$ heroku domains:add

now you want to point your GoDaddy  domain to your Heroku app with CNAME

1. login to goddady, and lunch your domain and click on "DNS Zone File" tab

2. Click "Add Record", Add CNAME, and point WWW to ""

3. refering to  you should point your A host  record  to

GoDaddy is changing design of their website too often, so if you cannot find these tabs, ...well, shit happens. Try to play around, they should be somewhere.
