Setting up a CNAME record for each of the domains or subdomains you've got in the hosting account allows you to direct it to a different domain/subdomain. The forwarded domain address will lose all of its records - A, MX and so on, and will take the records of the domain address it is being directed to. In this light, you can't set up a CNAME record to direct your domain to a third-party provider and keep a working email service with the first hosting company. It's also essential to know that a CNAME record is always a string of words rather than a number as it's generally confused with the A record of the domain being redirected. One of the primary uses of a CNAME record is to forward a domain address you own through one provider to the servers of another provider if you have created an Internet site with the latter. That way, the Internet site will appear under your own domain name, not under some subdomain provided by the third-party company.

CNAME Records in Cloud Web Hosting

You can easily create CNAME records provided you have a Linux cloud web hosting through our company. We're going to supply you with an easy-to-use Control Panel where you could view all DNS records for the domains and subdomains which are hosted within the account. Creating a CNAME record involves a number of basic steps - select the domain/subdomain, pick CNAME as the type, enter the hostname you are forwarding to, then simply click the Save button. The procedure is as elementary as that and the new record will be active almost immediately. This way, you are going to have more control over your domains and subdomains and over the content they open, you can create a private URL for company emails, and much more. If you feel uncertain about how to set up a new record or you have never done such a task, you will find a short video tutorial where you can 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'll require literally simply a mouse click to make it happen.

CNAME Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with every one of our semi-dedicated server accounts, allows you to create a CNAME record without difficulty. When you want to create a private URL for your emails, to redirect a domain address to a subdomain inside the account or to forward a domain address to another company and use some third-party service that they provide, it will not take you more than 3 clicks to create this sort of record. All DNS records for the domain addresses and subdomains hosted inside the semi-dedicated account will be listed in a separate section in the CP, so once you are there, all you will have to do will be to pick the type of the record that you want to create and the hostname for which you are creating it, and then type in the actual record text. For your convenience, you can see a short video within the CP concerning how to create a CNAME record or you can refer to the instructions in the help article, which is available in the DNS records section.
