CNAME Records in Shared Hosting
Creating a CNAME record with our Linux shared hosting is extremely easy. Our in-house built Hepsia CP features a section devoted to the DNS records of your domain names, so you can set up a new CNAME record for any domain or subdomain hosted inside your account in only a few basic steps. You can find a video tutorial within the same section where you can see the process first-hand. This feature offers you a number of opportunities - if you build a company site on our end, as an illustration, the staff can use their e-mails with the company domain name, not with the address of our mail server. If you choose to create a site using a different company that offers online web design services, you can easily forward a domain hosted here and use it for the website. Last, but not least, in case you have an on-line store and you have a billing system for http://your-domain.com and/or an SSL certificate, you'll be able to set up a CNAME record for the www subdomain and point it to the main domain address, so all your visitors will be forwarded to a secure URL.
CNAME Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with every single one of our semi-dedicated server accounts, will enable you to set up a CNAME record effortlessly. Whether you want to create a private URL for your emails, to forward a domain address to a subdomain in the account or to forward a domain to another company and use some third-party service that they provide, it's not going to require more than three clicks to create such a 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 that you will have to do will be to choose the type of the record that you want to create and the hostname for which you are creating it, and then input the actual record text. For your benefit, you can watch a short video within the Control Panel about how to set up a CNAME record or you can follow the instructions in the help article, which is available in the DNS records section.
