CNAME Records in Web Hosting
In case you have a web hosting plan from our company and you wish to set up a CNAME record, it will take you just a few clicks to get it done. You can access the DNS records for all domain names and subdomains hosted within your account through the Hepsia CP offered with every single plan and adding a new record is as basic as clicking on a button, choosing the type, which is CNAME in this case, inputting the actual record value and saving the change. If you've never added this type of record before, you will find a Help section with a detailed video tutorial that you can watch, or you can just contact us and we'll assist you with this task. If you have set up a website via another provider, you want to use a private URL for your webmail or you would like to designate a subdomain to be used with the services of a different company, for instance Google Apps, all it takes is setting up a CNAME record with a few clicks within your CP.
CNAME Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Managing DNS records usually appears to be a tough task to those with less experience, but the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with every single Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we offer, is quite easy to use. If you need to set up a CNAME record for any purpose, all you will have to do will be to choose the domain or subdomain you need, pick the type of record, which will be CNAME in this case, then type the value i.e. the domain name or subdomain you are forwarding to. The process is very easy and you can set up the record in the DNS Records section of the CP. Within the hour the new record is going to be fully active and within a couple of hours it is going to propagate worldwide. If you are not sure what you need to do, we have prepared a detailed help article and a short video tutorial on how to go about creating a CNAME record and they are both situated in that same section of Hepsia. Of course, you can also get in touch with us for help at any time.
