If you wish to direct a domain that you have to some other domain name or subdomain, the best way to do that would be to use a CNAME record. By setting up such a record, the domain address being pointed loses all its records (A, MX, and so forth) and instead, it takes the A record of the domain it's forwarded to. That 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 redirected to the website that you've created, but it'll also be displayed in the Internet browser address bar at all times. Other possible uses of a CNAME record are to redirect all the visitors from various subdomains to their main Internet domain, or to use the webmail service of your hosting provider 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 set up for the main domain makes it impossible to use e-mail addresses.
CNAME Records in Shared Website Hosting
You can effortlessly set up CNAME records if you have a Linux shared website hosting with our company. We're going to provide you with an easy-to-use CP where you could observe all DNS records for the domain addresses and subdomains that are hosted in the account. Setting up a CNAME record requires a few simple steps - choose the domain/subdomain, choose CNAME as the type, enter the hostname you are redirecting to, and then simply click on the Save button. The process is as basic as that and the new record is going to be active almost immediately. This way, you will have more control over your domains and subdomains and over the content they open, you'll be able to create a private URL for company emails, and 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 where you can see the whole process first-hand. If you decide to edit or delete an existing CNAME record created for a domain/subdomain hosted on our end, it will take you literally just a mouse click to get it done.
