CNAME Records in Shared Hosting
Creating a CNAME record through our Linux shared hosting services is really easy. Our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel features a section committed to the DNS records of your domain addresses, so you can create a new CNAME record for any domain or subdomain hosted within your account in just a few basic steps. There is also a video tutorial in the same section in which you can see the process first-hand. This feature offers you a number of opportunities - if you set up a company website on our end, for instance, the staff can use their e-mails with the company domain address, not with the address of our mail server. If you decide to set up a website by using a different company which offers online web design services, you can easily redirect a domain name hosted here and use it for the site. Last, but not least, in case you have an on-line store and you have a billing system for http://your-domain.com and/or an SSL certificate, you'll be able to create a CNAME record for the www subdomain and direct it to the main domain, so all your clients will be forwarded to a secure URL.
CNAME Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with every single one 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 emails, to forward a domain address to a subdomain within the account or to forward a domain name to another company and use some third-party service which they provide, it will not require more than three clicks to set up this type of record. All DNS records for the domain addresses and subdomains hosted inside the semi-dedicated account are going to be listed in a separate section in the Control Panel, so when you are there, all you will have to do will be to pick the type of the record that you want to set up and the hostname for which you are creating it, and then input the actual record text. For your convenience, you can watch a short video inside the CP regarding how to create a CNAME record or you can refer to the instructions in the help article, that's available in the DNS records section.
