If you would like to direct a domain that you have to another domain or subdomain, a good way to do that would be to use a CNAME record. By setting up such a record, the domain name being redirected loses all of its records (A, MX, etc) and instead, it takes the A record of the domain it is pointed to. That way, if you use a web design service by some provider that gives you a subdomain, you can use an actual domain and not only will it be pointed to the website which you have set up, but it'll also appear in the Internet browser address bar at all times. Alternative possible uses of a CNAME record are to forward all the targeted traffic from various subdomains to their main domain, or to use the webmail service of your webhosting company by using webmail.your-doman.com, for example. The latter will work only by creating a CNAME record for a subdomain because this kind of a record created for the main domain name renders it impossible to use e-mail addresses.
