CNAME records
« on: September 03, 2014, 12:58:15 AM »
Hi Guys,

I hope all is good with MilesWeb!

Is it possible to set a CNAME record for a domain to other domain name ? For example, set a CNAME for johnc.com to johnc.co.uk.

Hi John. Thank you for asking. Yes, all good here :-) I hope the same with you in Dallas. How's the weather ?

Now coming to the point ;-) You cannot set a CNAME record for the domain to other domain. You can either point a A record to the other domain's server IP OR set a redirect.

Example, set a CNAME for www.johnc.com to johnc.co.uk and then redirect johnc.com www.johnc.com. This should work for you.
