There are many ways to redirect a domain address to a different domain or subdomain and one of them is by creating a CNAME record. In case you own a domain name and you have developed a site using some on-line service which provides you with a service subdomain, you can easily link the two by creating a CNAME record for your-domain.com that directs to subdomain.provider.com. What you are going to achieve as a result is that www.your-domain.com is going to be in the web browser address bar while it opens the already mentioned site from the servers of the third-party provider. It is essential to know that if you create a CNAME record, any other records your domain name may have will stop functioning, so you cannot have both a CNAME record directing to one provider and functioning e-mail address with another one. The CNAME record is always an alpha string, not a number, and frequently more configuration may be necessary with the other provider.
