CNAME Records in Shared Hosting
In case you have a shared hosting plan from our company and you wish to set up a CNAME record, it will take you a few clicks to do it. You can access the DNS records for all domain names and subdomains hosted within your account from the Hepsia CP included with each and every plan and adding a new record is as easy as clicking on a button, picking out the type, which is CNAME in this case, typing the actual record value and saving the change. If you've never added such a record before, we have a Help section with a detailed video tutorial you can watch, or you can just contact us and we'll aid you with this task. If you have set up a site through 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 couple of clicks in your Control Panel.
CNAME Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
Managing DNS records usually seems a hard task to the people with less experience, but the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with every semi-dedicated server that we provide, is quite easy to use. If you need to set up a CNAME record for any purpose, all you need to do will be to pick the domain address or subdomain that you need, choose the type of record, which will be CNAME in this case, then type the value i.e. the domain address or subdomain you are forwarding to. The procedure is very simple and you can create the record in the DNS Records section of the Control Panel. Within the hour the new record is going to be completely active and within several hours it is going to propagate around the world. If you aren't sure what you have to do, we have prepared a detailed help article and a short video tutorial concerning how to go about creating a CNAME record and they are both situated in that very same section of Hepsia. Of course, you can also get in touch with us for help whenever you want.
