CNAME Records in Shared Web Hosting
Setting up a CNAME record with our shared web hosting is very easy. Our in-house built Hepsia CP has a section dedicated to the DNS records of your domain addresses, so you can set up 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 where you can see the process first-hand. This feature offers you a variety of opportunities - if you create a company website on our end, for example, the workers can use their e-mails with the company domain address, not with the address of our mail server. If you want to create an Internet site through a different company which 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 redirect it to the main domain name, so all your visitors will be forwarded to a secure URL.
CNAME Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server from our company and you wish to create a CNAME record, it will require just a couple of mouse clicks to complete this task. The plans are managed through our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel in which you will find a section devoted to the DNS records of the domain names and subdomains hosted in the account. To create a CNAME record, you'll only have to select the record type and the hostname (domain or subdomain), type in where the latter is going to be pointed to and save the modification. The new record will be active almost right away in our system and will propagate worldwide within a few hours. Editing or deleting an existing CNAME record within the account is just as easy and takes a click. In case you experience any issues, you can go through our in-depth help article, check out the short video on the topic that we have added in the Control Panel, or you can just contact us for assistance.
