I have created a CNAME for www.example.com to example.org

I would like to create a CNAME for example.com to example.org

Or, do I not need to do that?

Our former email domain rather than pointing to an IP address now needs to point to a cloud domain.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


Creating cname for root domain is not permitted by rfc.

  • Please extend your answer by providing an explanation of what is wrong, how it can be resolved and probably link the RFC your are referring to. – sebix Jun 13 '15 at 9:47
  • While the answer could have been more detailed, it's also correct, and I don't think that this is -2 worthy for a completely new user. – Andrew B Jun 13 '15 at 16:44
