CNAME Records in Cloud Hosting
Creating a CNAME record using our Linux cloud hosting is really easy. Our in-house built Hepsia CP includes 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 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 provides you with many options - if you create a company site on our end, for example, the employees can use their emails with the company domain address, not with the address of our mail server. If you want to set up a site by using a different company which offers online web design services, you can easily redirect a domain address hosted here and use it for the website. 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 can create a CNAME record for the www subdomain and direct it to the main domain, so all your clients 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, allows you to set up a CNAME record with ease. In case you want to create a private URL for your emails, to point a domain name to a subdomain within the account or to forward a domain address to another provider and use some third-party service that they provide, it will not require more than 3 mouse clicks to set up such a record. All DNS records for the domain names and subdomains hosted inside the semi-dedicated account are going to be listed in a separate section in the CP, so once you're there, all you will have to do will be to select the type of the record that you want to set up 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 CP about how to create a CNAME record or you can follow the instructions in the help article, that is available in the DNS records section.
