CNAME/DKIM record not being accepted.

When trying to add a CMS provided CNAME record, I get an error saying:

"Please enter a valid host name, which can either be an alpha-numeric string (like "abc123"), or * for your CNAME Records."

These types of records are accepted at all other registrars I have used. Is there a workaround?

Hello, 

If the CNAME has a special character in the host name, it wouldn't be able to be used through Homestead's DNS, but you can create an account with Cloudflare and run your Nameservers and DNS through there. This would allow you to add this record.

Moving Nameservers is not an option.

Why wouldn't you be able to change the Nameservers?
