CNAME Records in Shared Website Hosting
Creating a CNAME record using our Linux shared website hosting packages is very easy. Our in-house built Hepsia CP has a section dedicated to the DNS records of your domains, so you can create a new CNAME record for any domain or subdomain hosted within your account in just a few basic steps. You can find a video tutorial within the same section where you can see the process first-hand. This feature will give you many options - if you set up a company site on our end, as an illustration, the workers can use their emails with the company domain, not with the address of our mail server. If you decide to set up a site by using 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 a web-based store and you have a billing system for http://your-domain.com and/or an SSL certificate, you could set up a CNAME record for the www subdomain and redirect it to the main domain address, so all your visitors will be forwarded to a secure URL.
CNAME Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with every single one of our semi-dedicated server accounts, will allow you to set up a CNAME record effortlessly. If you want to create a private URL for your e-mails, 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 won't take you more than three clicks to set up this kind of record. All DNS records for the domains and subdomains hosted in the semi-dedicated account will be listed in a separate section in the CP, so once you're there, all you will have to do will be to choose the type of the record that you want to create and the hostname for which you are creating it, and then enter the actual record text. For your convenience, you can watch a short video inside the Control Panel concerning how to create a CNAME record or you can follow the instructions in the help article, which is available in the DNS records section.
