If you wish to forward a domain address that you have to another domain or subdomain, one of the ways to do that 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 forth) and instead, it takes the A record of the domain address it's directed to. In this way, if you use 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 site which you have created, but it will also appear in the web browser address bar at all times. Some other possible uses of a CNAME record are to redirect all of the traffic from various subdomains to their main Internet domain, or to use the webmail service of your hosting provider by using webmail.your-doman.com, for instance. 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 name makes it impossible to use email addresses.
