What is a CNAME (canonical name) record?

Last updated: 14/01/2016

A CNAME record (canonical name) points a host name to another hostname or FQDN.

For example you may add a CNAME record for your webmail server, "webmail" so whoever enters "webmail.yourdomain.be" arrives at the webmail application of your server, if set up appropriately of course.
