CNAME Records in Cloud Web Hosting
Setting up a CNAME record using our cloud web hosting is really easy. Our in-house built Hepsia CP includes a section dedicated 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. There is also a video tutorial within the same section where you can see the process first-hand. This feature gives you various options - if you create a company website on our end, for example, the staff can use their emails with the company domain, not with the address of our mail server. If you wish to create an Internet site using a different provider that offers online web design services, you can easily redirect a domain name hosted here and use it for the site. Last, but not least, in case you have a web-based store and you have a billing system for http://your-domain.com and/or an SSL certificate, you are able to create a CNAME record for the www subdomain and redirect it to the main domain, so all your customers will be forwarded to a secure URL.
CNAME Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with every one of our semi-dedicated server accounts, allows you to create a CNAME record with ease. When you want to create a private URL for your emails, to redirect a domain name to a subdomain within the account or to forward a domain to another company and use some third-party service which they provide, it will not take you more than three mouse clicks to set up this type of record. All DNS records for the domains and subdomains hosted inside the semi-dedicated account will be listed in a separate section in the CP, so once you are there, all that you will have to do will be to pick 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. For your benefit, you can see a short video in the Control Panel on how to create a CNAME record or you can follow the instructions in the help article, that is available in the DNS records section.
