There are many ways to redirect a domain name to another domain or subdomain and one of them is by setting up a CNAME record. In case you own a domain name and you've created a site through some on-line service that provides you with a service subdomain, you can easily link the two by creating a CNAME record for your-domain.com that redirects to subdomain.provider.com. What you will achieve by doing this is that www.your-domain.com will be in the browser address bar while it opens the already mentioned site from the servers of the third-party provider. 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 directing to one provider and functioning email addresses with another one. The CNAME record is always an alpha string, not a number, and sometimes additional configuration may be required with the other provider.

You can easily create CNAME records in case you have a Linux hosting package from our company. We'll provide you with an easy-to-use CP where you could view all DNS records for the domain addresses and subdomains that are hosted in the account. Setting up a CNAME record involves several simple steps - select the domain/subdomain, select CNAME as the type, enter the hostname you are redirecting to, then just click the Save button. The process is as simple as that and the new record will be active almost immediately. In this way, you will have more control over your domain addresses and subdomains and over the content they open, you could create a private URL for company e-mails, and more. If you feel unsure about how to create a new record or you have never done such a task, you will find a short video tutorial where you could see the whole process first-hand. If you want to change or delete an existing CNAME record created for a domain/subdomain hosted on our end, it'll require literally simply a click to make it happen.
