CNAME Records in Cloud Website Hosting
Setting up a CNAME record through our cloud website hosting plans is really easy. Our in-house built Hepsia CP has 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 in your account in a couple of easy steps. There is also a video tutorial inside the same section in which you can see the process first-hand. This feature will give you many possibilities - if you create a company site on our end, for instance, the staff can use their e-mails with the company domain address, not with the address of our mail server. If you want to set up an Internet site through a different company which offers online web design services, you can easily forward a domain hosted here and use it for the site. 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 can create a CNAME record for the www subdomain and forward it to the main domain name, so all your customers are going to be forwarded to a secure URL.
CNAME Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
Managing DNS records usually seems a hard task to the people with less experience, but the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with every Linux semi-dedicated server that we offer, is very simple 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 address or subdomain you need, pick the type of record, which will be CNAME in this case, then type in the value i.e. the domain 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 100 % active and within a few hours it's going to propagate around the world. If you are not sure what you should do, we've prepared an in depth help article and a short video tutorial concerning how to go about creating a CNAME record and they are both located within that same section of Hepsia. Naturally, you can also get in touch with us for help at any time.
