If you would like to forward a domain name that you have to a different domain address or subdomain, one way to do this would be to use a CNAME record. By creating such a record, the domain name being forwarded loses all of its records (A, MX, and so on) and instead, it takes the A record of the domain name it is 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 name and not only will it be pointed to the Internet site you have set up, but it will also be displayed in the web browser address bar at all times. Some other possible uses of a CNAME record are to redirect all the visitors from different subdomains to their main domain address, or to use the webmail service of your hosting company by using webmail.your-doman.com, for example. The latter will work only by setting up a CNAME record for a subdomain since this kind of a record created for the main domain address makes it impossible to use email addresses.
