    I probably have the solution to all people that have the (CNAME can only be set for subdomain):

    When you add the CNAME you see that Host Name is pre-filled with www, but it just appears to be pre-filled, while, it's actually empty and you need to click on the text box and add www

    Verify that Preview shows www. "yourdomain" 3600 IN CNAME instead of just "yourdomain" 3600 IN CNAME

    I'm sure this was your problem since I was in the same situation of you and now I solved it

    The most likely cause for that message (CNAME can only be set for subdomain) is that you have an A record for the "www" of the domain. Alternatively, you may have an existing CNAME record for WWW. I hope that helps anyone who sees that error.

    It would help if there was a simple explanation/reminder at the beginning of these steps as to why and/or why a person would want or need to do this. For beginners, this whole landscape can get very confusing, very quickly, especially when via this teaching method, there is no easy trail to backtrack on in case one gets confused.  Orienting people back to the 'why', the 'purpose' of why they are doing what they're doing could be very helpful.  Thank you

    100% agree with @sharon sanzo

    Potentially confusing / complicated for a beginner.
