There are lots of ways to point a domain address to another domain or subdomain and one of them is by creating a CNAME record. In case you own a domain and you have created a site through some online service which supplies you with a service subdomain, you could easily link the two by setting up a CNAME record for your-domain.com that points to subdomain.provider.com. What you'll achieve as a result is that www.your-domain.com is going to be in the browser address bar while it opens the already mentioned Internet site 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 name may have will stop functioning, so you can't have both a CNAME record pointing to one company and working e-mail address with another. The CNAME record is always an alpha string, not a number, and often further configuration may be required with the other company.
CNAME Records in Hosting
You can easily create CNAME records if you have a hosting
from our company. We'll provide you with an easy-to-use Control Panel which allows you to see all DNS records for the domains and subdomains which are hosted within the account. Creating a CNAME record involves a number of simple steps - select the domain/subdomain, select CNAME as the type, type in the hostname you are pointing to, after that simply click the Save button. The procedure is as simple as that and the new record is going to be active almost instantly. In this way, you're going to have more control over your domains and subdomains and over the content they open, you'll be able to set up a private URL for company emails, and much more. If you feel unclear 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 decide to modify or delete an existing CNAME record created for a domain/subdomain hosted on our end, it will take you literally simply a mouse click to do it.
