If you would like to direct a domain address that you have to another domain or subdomain, the best way to do this would be to use a CNAME record. By setting up such a record, the domain being forwarded loses all its records (A, MX, etc) and instead, it takes the A record of the domain it's redirected to. This way, if you use a web design service by some provider that gives you a subdomain, you can use an actual domain and not only will it be directed to the website which you have created, but it will also be displayed in the browser address bar at all times. Other possible uses of a CNAME record are to forward all of the visitors from different subdomains to their main domain address, or to use the webmail service of your hosting company by using webmail.your-doman.com, for example. The latter will work only by setting up a CNAME record for a subdomain simply because such a record created for the main domain makes it impossible to use e-mail addresses.
CNAME Records in Hosting
You can effortlessly create CNAME records if you have a hosting through our company. We're going to provide you with an easy-to-use Control Panel where you could observe all DNS records for the domain names and subdomains that are hosted inside the account. Setting up a CNAME record involves a number of simple steps - pick the domain/subdomain, select CNAME as the type, type in the hostname you are pointing to, then simply click the Save button. The process is as elementary as that and the new record is going to be active almost right away. This way, you are going to have more control over your domain addresses and subdomains and over the content they open, you'll be able to create a private URL for company e-mails, and a lot more. If you feel unclear about how to create a new record or you have never done such a task, we have a short video tutorial in which you can see the whole process first-hand. If you choose to modify or delete an existing CNAME record created for a domain/subdomain hosted on our end, it'll take you literally simply a mouse click to do it.
