CNAME Records in Hosting
Setting up a CNAME record through our Linux hosting plans is very easy. Our in-house built Hepsia CP features a section devoted to the DNS records of your domain names, so you can create a new CNAME record for any domain or subdomain hosted within your account in only a few basic steps. You will find a video tutorial within the same section in which you can see the process first-hand. This feature provides you with many possibilities - if you create a company website on our end, for example, the employees can use their emails with the company domain name, not with the address of our mail server. If you decide to set up a site by using a different company 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, 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 could set up 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 Servers
Managing DNS records usually seems a tough task to people with less experience, but the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with every Linux semi-dedicated server which we offer, is quite easy to use. If you would like to create a CNAME record for any purpose, all that you need to do will be to select the domain name or subdomain you need, select the type of record, that will be CNAME in this case, then input the value i.e. the domain 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 CP. Within the hour the new record is going to be 100 % active and within several hours it's going to propagate around the world. If you aren't sure what you have to do, we've prepared a detailed help article and a short video tutorial on 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 help whenever you want.
