Unable to Correctly Connect/Configure Subdomain on My Domain

Hi. Newbie here. Building a great stack, but have been unable to connect to my website (gregyatesconsulting.com) which is hosted on SiteGround. Added a DNS CNAME (stacks.gregyatesconsulting.com) to the SiteGround DNS Zone Editor. WhatsmyDNS shows that gallant-hoover-a0b8b5.netlify.app has propagated but when I search URL stacks.gregyatesconsulting.com I get a message it is not found.

I suspected I need to create an “A” Record instead of CNAME but can’t fine a IPv4 Address to point the A Record to. I’ve search Netlify site and Community site for ideas to connect as a subdomain to my main site, but so far unsuccessful.

Any help greatly appreciated. Thank you.
