There are various ways to point a domain address to another domain or subdomain and one of them is by setting up a CNAME record. If you own a domain and you have developed a website through some online service which supplies you with a service subdomain, you can easily link the two by setting up a CNAME record for your-domain.com that points to subdomain.provider.com. What you are going to achieve with this is that www.your-domain.com is going to be in the browser address bar while it opens the already mentioned site from the servers of the third-party company. You should know that if you create a CNAME record, any other records your domain may have will stop working, so you can't have both a CNAME record pointing to one provider and functioning email addresses with a different one. The CNAME record is always an alpha string, not a number, and frequently further configuration may be required with the other company.
