If you wish to direct a domain name that you have to a different domain or subdomain, a good way to do this would be to use a CNAME record. By creating such a record, the domain name being forwarded loses all its records (A, MX, and so on) and instead, it takes the A record of the domain address it is redirected to. In this way, if you use a web design service by some provider that gives you a subdomain, you can use an actual domain name and not only will it be directed to the Internet site that you have set up, but it'll also appear in the Internet browser address bar at all times. Other possible uses of a CNAME record are to forward all the targeted traffic from various subdomains to their main domain, 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 type of a record set up for the main domain makes it impossible to use e-mail addresses.
