There are lots of ways to redirect a domain address to a different domain or subdomain and one of them is by setting up a CNAME record. When you own a domain and you have developed a website using some on-line service that provides you with a service subdomain, you could easily link the two by setting up a CNAME record for that points to What you'll achieve with this is that will be in the browser address bar while it opens the already mentioned Internet site from the servers of the third-party provider. It is important to know that if you create a CNAME record, any other records your domain name may have will stop working, so you cannot have both a CNAME record pointing to one company and working email addresses with another one. The CNAME record is always an alpha string, not a number, and in some cases additional configuration may be needed with the other provider.
