CNAME Records in Shared Web Hosting
Setting up a CNAME record through our shared web hosting is quite simple. Our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel has a section devoted to the DNS records of your domains, so you can set up a new CNAME record for any domain or subdomain hosted in your account in just a few simple steps. You will find a video tutorial in the same section in which you can see the process first-hand. This feature provides you with a variety of options - if you build a company website on our end, for instance, the employees can use their emails with the company domain address, not with the address of our mail server. If you decide to set up a site through a different provider that offers online web design services, you can easily forward a domain name hosted here and use it for the website. Last, but not least, in case you have an online store and you have a billing system for http://your-domain.com and/or an SSL certificate, you could set up a CNAME record for the www subdomain and forward it to the main domain address, so all your visitors 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 effortlessly. If you want to create a private URL for your e-mails, to point a domain name to a subdomain inside the account or to forward a domain to another provider and use some third-party service which they provide, it won't require more than 3 mouse clicks to set up this type of record. All DNS records for the domains and subdomains hosted in the semi-dedicated account will be listed in a separate section in the CP, so once you are there, all that you will have to do will be to select 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 benefit, you can see a short video within the Control Panel 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.
