If you'd like to forward a domain address that you have to a different domain name or subdomain, the best way to do that would be to use a CNAME record. By creating such a record, the domain being pointed loses all of its records (A, MX, and so forth) and instead, it takes the A record of the domain address it is forwarded to. By doing this, if you are using a web design service by some provider 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 will also appear in the web browser address bar at all times. Some other possible uses of a CNAME record are to point all of the traffic from different subdomains to their main domain name, or to use the webmail service of your webhosting company by using webmail.your-doman.com, for instance. The latter will work only by setting up a CNAME record for a subdomain due to the fact that this kind of a record set up for the main domain address makes it impossible to use email addresses.
