CNAME record

With a CNAME record, you can use a subdomain as an alias for another domain. For example, you can use a CNAME record to redirect users to your corporate Yandex.Mail when they open an address in the format mail.example.org.

If you delegated your domain to Yandex servers, the CNAME record is configured automatically.

General guide for setting up a CNAME record

If you want to use the mail.yourdomain.tld format for your corporate email address, do the following:

  1. Log in to your DNS hosting company's control panel.

    If you delegated your domain to Yandex servers, go to the Yandex.Connect DNS Editor.

  2. Create a CNAME record with the following values (the field names may differ for different management panels):

    • Name — mail

      Some control panels require you to enter the full name of your subdomain (for example, mail.yourdomain.tld).

    • Value — domain.mail.yandex.net.

      Note that you don't actually need to change the name of your server (you don't need to change domain to your domain name).

      The dot at the end of the server name is required, unless your control panel adds this dot by default.

  3. Wait for the changes to take effect in the DNS. It may take DNS servers up to 72 hours to exchange the updated DNS records.
