The Cname Records consist of an association between a host name and relevant pointing, which will be in the form of a text string. It is in fact an INDIRECT association as the host in CNAME will point to ANOTHER name which, in turn, will correspond to an existing Record (A or AAAA or CNAME) which may or may not belong to the domain.
For example, you may have:
hostcname.domainname.xxx pointing to: any.any.xxx
where “domainname.xxx” is the domain for which you purchased the “DNS Management” service and “any” is any which domain it points to.
The CName records are also known as “Alias” as they represent alternative names to existing  records (A or AAAA or CNAME).

To change, add or delete a CName record you simply need to click the “Manage” button in the section relevant to the CNAME Record:


N.B. You can manage the CNAME Record, only if you have chosen to use the Name Servers of Aruba.
