There are numerous ways to direct a domain to another 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 could easily link the two by setting up a CNAME record for that redirects to What you are going to achieve in this way is that is going to be in the Internet browser address bar while it opens the already mentioned website from the servers of the third-party provider. It is essential to know that if you set up a CNAME record, any other records your domain name may have will stop working, so you cannot have both a CNAME record pointing to one company and functioning email addresses with a different one. The CNAME record is always an alpha string, not a number, and often further configuration may be needed with the other provider.
