Creating a CNAME record for any one of the domain names or subdomains that you've got within a hosting account will allow you to redirect it to a different domain/subdomain. The forwarded domain name will lose all its records - A, MX and so forth, and will take the records of the domain name it is being pointed to. In this light, you cannot set up a CNAME record to forward your domain name to a third-party provider and maintain a functional email service with the first hosting company. It's also important to note that a CNAME record is always a string of words and not a number as it's regularly wrongly identified as the A record of the domain being forwarded. One of the primary uses of a CNAME record is to direct a domain address you own through one company to the servers of another company when you have set up a site with the latter. That way, the Internet site will appear under your own domain name, not under some subdomain provided by the third-party company.

The procedure is as easy as that and the new record is going to be active almost right away. In this way, you'll have more control over your domains and subdomains and over the content they open, you could create a private URL for company e-mails, and a lot more. If you feel uncertain about how to create a new record or you have never done such a task, you will find there's a short video tutorial where you can see the whole process first-hand.
