If you would like to direct a domain address that you have to another domain name or subdomain, one of the ways to do this would be to use a CNAME record. By creating such a record, the domain address being pointed loses all its records (A, MX, etc) and instead, it takes the A record of the Internet domain it's pointed 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 forwarded to the Internet site which you have set up, but it will also appear in the web browser address bar at all times. Alternative possible uses of a CNAME record are to direct all the traffic from various subdomains to their main domain address, or to use the webmail service of your hosting provider by using webmail.your-doman.com, for instance. The latter will work only by creating a CNAME record for a subdomain due to the fact that this type of a record set up for the main domain makes it impossible to use e-mail addresses.
