CNAME Records in Shared Hosting
Creating a CNAME record with our Linux shared hosting services is very simple. 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 a couple of simple steps. There is also a video tutorial in the same section in which you can see the process first-hand. This feature gives you many options - if you create a company site on our end, as an illustration, the workers can use their emails with the company domain, not with the address of our mail server. If you want to set up a website using a different provider that offers online web design services, you can easily forward a domain name hosted here and use it for the website. Last, but not least, if you have an online store and you have a billing system for http://your-domain.com and/or an SSL certificate, you can create a CNAME record for the www subdomain and forward it to the main domain address, so all your customers will be forwarded to a secure URL.
CNAME Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with each of our semi-dedicated server accounts, allows you to create a CNAME record easily. When you want to create a private URL for your e-mails, to redirect a domain address to a subdomain inside the account or to forward a domain to another provider and use some third-party service that they provide, it will not take you more than three mouse clicks to create this kind of record. All DNS records for the domain addresses and subdomains hosted in the semi-dedicated account will be listed in a separate section in the Control Panel, so when you are there, all that you will have to do will be to select the type of the record that you want to set up 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 inside the Control Panel concerning how to set up a CNAME record or you can refer to the instructions in the help article, that is available in the DNS records section.
