If you want to direct a domain that you have to another domain address or subdomain, a good way to do this would be to use a CNAME record. By setting up such a record, the domain name being pointed loses all of its records (A, MX, etc) and instead, it takes the A record of the Internet domain it's 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 name and not only will it be pointed to the Internet site that you have created, but it will also appear in the Internet browser address bar at all times. Alternative possible uses of a CNAME record are to redirect all the visitors from various subdomains to their main domain name, or to use the webmail service of your webhosting company by using webmail.your-doman.com, for example. The latter will work only by setting up a CNAME record for a subdomain because this kind of a record created for the main domain address renders it impossible to use email addresses.
