CNAME Records in Shared Hosting
Setting up a CNAME record using our Linux shared hosting is very simple. Our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel features a section devoted to the DNS records of your domain addresses, so you can create a new CNAME record for any domain or subdomain hosted inside your account in a couple of basic steps. You'll find a video tutorial in the same section where you can see the process first-hand. This feature provides you with a variety of opportunities - if you build a company website on our end, for instance, the workers can use their e-mails with the company domain, not with the address of our mail server. If you decide to create a website by using a different company which offers online web design services, you can easily forward a domain address hosted here and use it for the site. Last, but not least, if you have a web-based 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 redirect it to the main domain address, so all your clients are going to be forwarded to a secure URL.
CNAME Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server through our company and you wish to set up a CNAME record, it takes no more than a couple of clicks to complete this task. The plans are managed through our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel in which you will discover a section committed to the DNS records of the domain addresses and subdomains hosted within the account. To set up a CNAME record, you will simply have to pick the record type and the hostname (domain or subdomain), input where the latter will be forwarded to and save the change. The new record will be active almost immediately in our system and will propagate worldwide within a couple of hours. Editing or deleting an existing CNAME record in the account is equally easy and takes a click. In the event you experience any troubles, you can go through our in-depth help article, check out the short video on the subject that we have added in the CP, or you can simply contact us for help.
