If you would like to forward a domain name that you have to a different domain name or subdomain, a good way to do that would be to use a CNAME record. By creating such a record, the domain name being pointed loses all its records (A, MX, and so forth) and instead, it takes the A record of the Internet domain it is pointed to. This way, 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 directed to the Internet site which you have created, but it'll also be displayed in the Internet browser address bar at all times. Alternative possible uses of a CNAME record are to direct all the targeted traffic 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 instance. The latter will work only by creating a CNAME record for a subdomain because this kind of a record set up for the main domain name makes it impossible to use e-mail addresses.
