CNAME Records in Shared Web Hosting
Creating a CNAME record using our shared web hosting is very simple. Our in-house built Hepsia CP has a section committed 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'll find a video tutorial in the same section where you can see the process first-hand. This feature will give you various opportunities - if you create 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 decide to set up a site through 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, if you have an online 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 direct it to the main domain, so all your customers are going to be forwarded to a secure URL.
CNAME Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server from our company and you want to set up a CNAME record, it takes just a couple of clicks to complete this task. The plans are handled through our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP where you will find a section devoted to the DNS records of the domains and subdomains hosted inside the account. To set up a CNAME record, you will simply have to pick the record type and the hostname (domain or subdomain), key in where the latter will be forwarded to and save the modification. 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 within the account is just as simple and takes a click. In the event you experience any issues, you can go through our comprehensive help article, see the short video on the topic that we have added in the Control Panel, or simply contact us for help.
