When creating your CNAME you will be masking the cname.travelnow.com part of the url of your affiliate site, but you still need to include “templates/CID” in all your links (even the home page) for your affiliate site to work properly.[/note]
Due to EAN system upgrades, pointing your CNAME to the travel.ian.com domain will no longer work starting August 23rd. It is absolutely imperative that your CNAME record points to cname.travelnow.com before the deadline. Partners who do not update their CNAME could experience link breakage and consequently decreased revenue. Please refer to the EAN URL Masking Guide for details as to how your CNAME should be configured.
The Destination Guides pages reside on a different server and no changes are needed for CNAME records pointing to the dg.ian.com domain at this time.
This is solely an administrative change within your DNS settings – so long as your existing CNAME alias remains the same the links on your site will not require modification.
