CNAME Records in Shared Hosting
Creating a CNAME record with our Linux shared hosting is really easy. Our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel includes 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 a couple of easy steps. There is also a video tutorial inside the same section in which you can see the process first-hand. This feature offers you many possibilities - if you set up a company website on our end, as an illustration, the staff can use their e-mails with the company domain address, not with the address of our mail server. If you decide to set up an Internet site using a different company that offers online web design services, you can easily forward a domain address hosted here and use it for the website. Last, but not least, if you have an on-line 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 forward it to the main domain address, so all your visitors are going to be forwarded to a secure URL.
CNAME Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each of our semi-dedicated server accounts, will permit you to create a CNAME record without difficulty. Whether you want to create a private URL for your emails, to forward a domain to a subdomain within the account or to forward a domain address to another company and use some third-party service which they provide, it's not going to take you more than 3 mouse clicks to set up this type of record. All DNS records for the domain names and subdomains hosted within the semi-dedicated account will be listed in a separate section in the Control Panel, so once you're there, all that you will have to do will be to select 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 benefit, you can watch a short video in the CP concerning how to set up a CNAME record or you can refer to the instructions in the help article, that is available in the DNS records section.
