There are several ways to redirect a domain to a different domain or subdomain and one of them is by setting up a CNAME record. In case you own a domain and you've created a site through some on-line service which supplies you with a service subdomain, you could easily link the two by creating a CNAME record for your-domain.com that points to subdomain.provider.com. What you're going to achieve as a result is that www.your-domain.com will be in the Internet browser address bar while it opens the already mentioned Internet site from the servers of the third-party company. You should 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 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 additional configuration may be needed with the other provider.
