CNAME Records in Shared Web Hosting
Setting up a CNAME record using our Linux shared web hosting is really easy. Our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel has a section committed to the DNS records of your domains, so you can set up a new CNAME record for any domain or subdomain hosted in your account in a couple of basic steps. There is also a video tutorial in the same section in which you can see the process first-hand. This feature provides you with many opportunities - if you set up a company site on our end, as an illustration, the employees can use their emails with the company domain name, not with the address of our mail server. If you choose to set up an Internet site through a different provider which offers online web design services, you can easily redirect a domain hosted here and use it for the site. Last, but not least, in case you have an online 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 redirect it to the main domain address, so all your clients will be forwarded to a secure URL.
CNAME Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Managing DNS records usually seems to be a difficult task to the people with less experience, but the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each and every Linux semi-dedicated hosting which we offer, is extremely simple to use. If you would like to create a CNAME record for any purpose, all you have to do will be to select the domain name or subdomain that you need, select the type of record, which will be CNAME in this case, then type in the value i.e. the domain address or subdomain you are forwarding to. The process is quite simple and you can create the record in the DNS Records section of the CP. Within the hour the new record is going to be fully active and within several hours it'll propagate around the globe. If you aren't sure what you have to do, we've prepared a comprehensive help article and a short video tutorial on how to go about creating a CNAME record and they are both located within that very same section of Hepsia. Of course, you can also get in touch with us for help at any moment.
