There are various ways to redirect a domain address to an alternative domain or subdomain and one of them is by creating a CNAME record. When you own a domain and you have created a site using some on-line 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 redirects to subdomain.provider.com. What you will achieve in this way is that www.your-domain.com will be in the web browser address bar while it opens the already mentioned website from the servers of the third-party company. It is essential to know that if you set up a CNAME record, any other records your domain address may have will stop working, 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 additional configuration may be necessary with the other provider.

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with every single one of our semi-dedicated server accounts, will permit you to set up a CNAME record effortlessly.

All DNS records for the domain names and subdomains hosted inside the semi-dedicated account will be listed in a separate section in the CP, so once you're 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 enter the actual record text.
