If you want to direct a domain address that you have to a different domain or subdomain, the best way to do this would be to use a CNAME record. By setting up such a record, the domain address being forwarded loses all of its records (A, MX, and so on) and instead, it takes the A record of the Internet domain it is redirected to. By doing this, if you are using a web design service by some company that gives you a subdomain, you can use an actual domain and not only will it be pointed to the site you have created, but it will also appear in the web browser address bar at all times. Some other possible uses of a CNAME record are to point all of the visitors from different subdomains to their main Internet domain, or to use the webmail service of your hosting provider by using webmail.your-doman.com, for example. The latter will work only by setting up a CNAME record for a subdomain simply because such a record created for the main domain renders it impossible to use e-mail addresses.

The procedure is as easy as that and the new record will be active almost instantly.
