There are lots of ways to redirect a domain name to a different domain or subdomain and one of them is by creating a CNAME record. In case you own a domain and you've set up a site through some online service that provides you with a service subdomain, you could easily link the two by setting up a CNAME record for your-domain.com that points to subdomain.provider.com. What you will achieve by doing this is that www.your-domain.com is going to be in the web browser address bar while it opens the already mentioned website from the servers of the third-party provider. You should know that if you set up 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 e-mail address with a different one. The CNAME record is always an alpha string, not a number, and sometimes more configuration may be required with the other company.

The procedure is as simple as that and the new record is going to be active almost instantly. This way, you'll have more control over your domain names and subdomains and over the content they open, you'll be able to set up a private URL for company emails, and a lot more.
