CNAME Records in Cloud Hosting
Setting up a CNAME record with our cloud hosting is quite easy. Our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel includes a section devoted to the DNS records of your domain addresses, so you can set up a new CNAME record for any domain or subdomain hosted in your account in only a few simple steps. You can find a video tutorial in the same section where you can see the process first-hand. This feature gives you a variety of options - if you create a company website on our end, as an illustration, the employees can use their emails with the company domain, not with the address of our mail server. If you want to set up a site by using a different company that offers online web design services, you can easily redirect a domain hosted here and use it for the site. Last, but not least, in case you have a web-based store and you have a billing system for http://your-domain.com and/or an SSL certificate, you may create a CNAME record for the www subdomain and point it to the main domain name, so all your customers will be forwarded to a secure URL.
CNAME Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with each of our semi-dedicated server accounts, will allow you to set up a CNAME record easily. If you want to create a private URL for your emails, to redirect a domain address to a subdomain in the account or to forward a domain name to another company and use some third-party service that they provide, it won't require more than 3 clicks to set up such a record. All DNS records for the domain names and subdomains hosted inside the semi-dedicated account will 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 in the CP regarding how to set up a CNAME record or you can follow the instructions in the help article, that's available in the DNS records section.
