There are numerous ways to redirect a domain to a different domain or subdomain and one of them is by creating a CNAME record. In case you own a domain and you have set up a site through some on-line service which supplies you with a service subdomain, you can easily link the two by setting up a CNAME record for your-domain.com that directs to subdomain.provider.com. What you will achieve by doing this is that www.your-domain.com is going to be in the browser address bar while it opens the already mentioned site from the servers of the third-party company. You should know that if you create a CNAME record, any other records your domain name may have will stop functioning, so you cannot have both a CNAME record directing to one company and functioning e-mail address with another. The CNAME record is always an alpha string, not a number, and in some cases more configuration may be required with the other provider.

The Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with every one of our semi-dedicated server accounts, will permit you to create a CNAME record easily.

All DNS records for the domain names and subdomains hosted inside the semi-dedicated account are going to be listed in a separate section in the CP, 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 type in the actual record text.
