CNAME Records in Hosting
Setting up a CNAME record through our hosting plans is extremely simple. Our in-house built Hepsia CP has a section dedicated to the DNS records of your domain names, so you can set up a new CNAME record for any domain or subdomain hosted inside your account in only a few easy steps. There is also a video tutorial in the same section in which you can see the process first-hand. This feature will give you many possibilities - if you build a company site on our end, as an illustration, the employees can use their emails with the company domain name, not with the address of our mail server. If you choose to set up a site by using a different provider that 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 may set up a CNAME record for the www subdomain and point it to the main domain name, so all your clients are going to be forwarded to a secure URL.
CNAME Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
Managing DNS records usually seems a tough task to the people with less experience, but the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with every single semi-dedicated plan that we provide, is extremely simple to use. If you wish to create a CNAME record for any purpose, all you have to do will be to pick the domain name or subdomain that you need, choose the type of record, that will be CNAME in this case, then enter the value i.e. the domain address or subdomain you are forwarding to. The procedure is quite easy and you can set up the record in the DNS Records section of the Control Panel. Within the hour the new record will be 100 % active and within several hours it's going to propagate worldwide. If you aren't sure what you need to do, we've prepared an in depth help article and a short video tutorial regarding 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 assistance anytime.
