If you would like to forward a domain name that you have to some other domain address or subdomain, one way to do this would be to use a CNAME record. By setting up such a record, the domain being redirected loses all its records (A, MX, and so forth) and instead, it takes the A record of the domain address it is redirected to. By doing this, if you are using a web design service by some company that gives you a subdomain, you can use an actual domain name and not only will it be forwarded to the site you have set up, but it will also be displayed in the browser address bar at all times. Other possible uses of a CNAME record are to point all of the visitors from various subdomains to their main domain, 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 simply because this type of a record set up for the main domain renders it impossible to use email addresses.
