CNAME Records in Cloud Website Hosting
Setting up a CNAME record through our cloud website hosting is quite easy. Our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel features 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 in your account in just a few simple steps. There is also a video tutorial within the same section in which you can see the process first-hand. This feature gives you a variety of options - if you create a company website on our end, for instance, the workers can use their e-mails with the company domain address, not with the address of our mail server. If you choose to create a website using a different company that offers online web design services, you can easily forward a domain name 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 can set up 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
Managing DNS records usually seems a hard task to those with less experience, but the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with every Linux semi-dedicated server which we offer, is very easy to use. If you'd like to set up a CNAME record for any purpose, all that you have to do will be to select the domain name or subdomain you need, pick the type of record, which will be CNAME in this case, then type the value i.e. the domain or subdomain you are forwarding to. The process is quite simple and you can set up the record in the DNS Records section of the CP. Within the hour the new record is going to be completely active and within a couple of hours it is going to propagate all over the world. If you are not sure what you have to do, we've prepared a detailed help article and a short video tutorial concerning how to go about creating a CNAME record and they are both located in that very same section of Hepsia. Of course, you can also get in touch with us for assistance at any time.
