CNAME Records in Cloud Hosting
Setting up a CNAME record through our cloud hosting is very easy. Our in-house built Hepsia CP has 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 only a few easy steps. You can find a video tutorial in the same section where you can see the process first-hand. This feature offers you various options - if you build a company site on our end, for instance, the staff can use their emails with the company domain address, not with the address of our mail server. If you choose to create a website using a different company which offers online web design services, you can easily redirect a domain name 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 can create a CNAME record for the www subdomain and forward it to the main domain address, so all your visitors are going to be forwarded to a secure URL.
CNAME Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
Managing DNS records usually appears to be a challenging task to people with less experience, but the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with every single semi-dedicated server which we provide, is very simple to use. If you want to set up a CNAME record for any purpose, all that you will need to do will be to select the domain name or subdomain that you need, choose the type of record, that will be CNAME in this case, then enter the value i.e. the domain name or subdomain you are forwarding to. The process is very simple and you can set up the record in the DNS Records section of the CP. Within the hour the new record will be completely active and within a few hours it'll propagate worldwide. If you're not sure what you have to do, we've prepared a detailed help article and a short video tutorial on how to go about creating a CNAME record and they're both located within that very same section of Hepsia. Of course, you can also get in touch with us for help at any time.
