There are various ways to direct a domain to another domain or subdomain and one of them is by creating a CNAME record. In case you own a domain and you have developed a website using some online service that provides you with a service subdomain, you can easily link the two by setting up a CNAME record for your-domain.com that directs to subdomain.provider.com. What you'll achieve as a result is that www.your-domain.com will be in the browser address bar while it opens the already mentioned website from the servers of the third-party company. It is very important to know that if you set up a CNAME record, any other records your domain may have will stop working, so you can't have both a CNAME record directing to one company and working email addresses with another one. The CNAME record is always an alpha string, not a number, and sometimes more configuration may be needed with the other provider.

CNAME Records in Cloud Hosting

You can easily create CNAME records provided you have a Linux cloud hosting with our company. We'll supply you with an easy-to-use Control Panel where you could view all DNS records for the domains and subdomains which are hosted inside the account. Setting up a CNAME record includes a number of easy steps - select the domain/subdomain, pick CNAME as the type, enter the hostname you are redirecting to, after that just click on the Save button. The process is as basic as that and the new record will be active almost immediately. This way, you'll have more control over your domain names and subdomains and over the content they open, you could set up a private URL for company e-mails, plus much more. If you feel uncertain about how to create a new record or you have never done such a task, you will find there's a short video tutorial where you can see the whole process first-hand. If you want to edit or delete an existing CNAME record created for a domain/subdomain hosted on our end, it'll take you literally just a mouse click to make it happen.

CNAME Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to set up, modify and delete CNAME records really easy with any one of our semi-dedicated server plans. The accounts are handled via the custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel, and in one of its sections you will see all records for every domain address or subdomain that you have added in your account. To set up a new record, you need to select the hostname that'll be forwarded (domain/subdomain), type in where it will be forwarded to, pick the record type, which will be CNAME in this case, and you will be all set. Even if you haven't used a web hosting service before, our CP is very easy to use, so you'll not have any problems. We also have a short video and a detailed help article regarding how to create a CNAME record, both of which can be found in the exact same section of Hepsia. With this function, you could easily use a domain hosted on our innovative cloud hosting platform for a site created someplace else, create a custom webmail login address with any of your domain names, plus much more.
