CNAME Records in Shared Web Hosting
Creating a CNAME record through our Linux shared web hosting packages is really simple. Our in-house built Hepsia CP includes 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 a couple of simple steps. You can find a video tutorial inside the same section in which you can see the process first-hand. This feature gives you a number of options - if you set up a company site on our end, for example, the employees can use their e-mails with the company domain, not with the address of our mail server. If you choose to set up a website through a different provider 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, if you have a web-based store and you have a billing system for http://your-domain.com and/or an SSL certificate, you'll be able to set up a CNAME record for the www subdomain and point it to the main domain, so all your customers will be forwarded to a secure URL.
CNAME Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Managing DNS records usually seems to be a tough task to people with less experience, but the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with every single Linux semi-dedicated hosting package we provide, is very easy to use. If you'd like to set up a CNAME record for any purpose, all that you will need to do will be to select the domain address or subdomain that you need, select the type of record, which will be CNAME in this case, then type in the value i.e. the domain name or subdomain you are forwarding to. The process is quite easy and you can create the record in the DNS Records section of the Control Panel. Within the hour the new record will be completely active and within several hours it's going to propagate around the globe. If you aren't sure what you have to do, we have prepared an in depth help article and a short video tutorial regarding how to go about creating a CNAME record and they're both situated in that very same section of Hepsia. Needless to say, you can also get in touch with us for assistance anytime.
