What is a CName (Canonical Name Record)?

A Canonical Name record (abbreviated as CNAME record) is a type of resource record in the Domain Name System (DNS) used to specify that a domain name is an alias for another domain, which is the 'canonical' domain ( Source Wikipedia ).

In the UVdesk Helpdesk, we provide the owner the ability to add CNAME along with the registered Subdomain so that the owner can access the registered Subdomain through the CNAME also.

Example:

Let's say you have a UVdesk account where you keep all your reports online, it might be accessed through abc.uvdesk.com and you may also want to access it through support.abc.com.

One way to do this is to add a CName record that points abc.uvdesk.com to support.abc.com. When a customer visits abc.uvdesk.com they will see the same content as in support.abc.com
