There are several ways to redirect a domain address to another domain or subdomain and one of them is by creating a CNAME record. If you own a domain and you've created a website through some online service which provides you with a service subdomain, you could easily link the two by creating 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. You should know that if you set up a CNAME record, any other records your domain may have will stop working, so you cannot have both a CNAME record directing to one company and working e-mail address with another. The CNAME record is always an alpha string, not a number, and often more configuration may be needed with the other company.

CNAME Records in Shared Hosting

You can easily create CNAME records provided you have a shared hosting from our company. We're going to supply you with an easy-to-use Control Panel where you could observe all DNS records for the domain addresses and subdomains which are hosted within the account. Setting up a CNAME record includes a number of simple steps - pick the domain/subdomain, choose CNAME as the type, enter the hostname you are redirecting to, after that simply click on the Save button. The procedure is as simple as that and the new record is going to be active almost right away. 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 unsure about how to set up a new record or you have never done such a task, you will find there's a short video tutorial where you could see the whole process first-hand. If you want to modify or delete an existing CNAME record created for a domain/subdomain hosted on our end, it will take you literally simply a click to do it.
