CNAME Record

CNAME records are referred to as alias records since they map an alias to its canonical name. CNAME records allow an administrator to point multiple systems to one IP without specifically assigning an A record to each host name. If your server IP ever changes, you only have to change one A record’s IP address to update all associated records.
