CNAME Records in Hosting
Creating a CNAME record through our Linux hosting is extremely simple. Our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel includes a section devoted to the DNS records of your domains, so you can set up a new CNAME record for any domain or subdomain hosted inside your account in a couple of easy steps. You can find a video tutorial in the same section in which you can see the process first-hand. This feature will give you a variety of possibilities - if you set up a company site on our end, for example, the staff can use their emails with the company domain, not with the address of our mail server. If you choose to set up an Internet site using a different provider that offers online web design services, you can easily forward a domain name hosted here and use it for the site. Last, but not least, in case you have a web-based store and you have a billing system for http://your-domain.com and/or an SSL certificate, you could create a CNAME record for the www subdomain and direct it to the main domain name, so all your visitors will be forwarded to a secure URL.
CNAME Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Managing DNS records usually seems to be a hard task to people with less experience, but the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with every single Linux semi-dedicated hosting which we provide, is very easy to use. If you wish to set up a CNAME record for any purpose, all you will have to do will be to select the domain name or subdomain that you need, pick the type of record, that will be CNAME in this case, then type in the value i.e. the domain address or subdomain you are forwarding to. The procedure is quite simple and you can set up the record in the DNS Records section of the Control Panel. Within the hour the new record will be 100 % active and within a couple of hours it will propagate all over the world. If you are not sure what you should do, we have prepared a detailed help article and a short video tutorial concerning how to go about creating a CNAME record and they're both located within that very same section of Hepsia. Needless to say, you can also get in touch with us for assistance whenever you want.
