CNAME Records in Shared Hosting
Creating a CNAME record using our shared hosting is really easy. Our in-house built Hepsia CP has a section devoted to the DNS records of your domain names, so you can create 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 inside the same section in which you can see the process first-hand. This feature provides you with many opportunities - if you create a company site on our end, for instance, the staff can use their emails with the company domain name, not with the address of our mail server. If you choose to set up a site by using a different provider 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 are able to create a CNAME record for the www subdomain and point it to the main domain, so all your clients will 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 allow you to set up a CNAME record without difficulty. When you want to create a private URL for your e-mails, to redirect a domain to a subdomain within the account or to forward a domain to another provider and use some third-party service which they provide, it won't take you more than three mouse clicks to create this type of record. All DNS records for the domains and subdomains hosted within the semi-dedicated account will be listed in a separate section in the Control Panel, so once you are there, all you will have to do will be to pick the type of the record that you want to create and the hostname for which you are creating it, and then type in the actual record text. For your convenience, you can watch a short video in the Control Panel regarding how to set up a CNAME record or you can follow the instructions in the help article, which is available in the DNS records section.
