What is a MX and CNAME record?
A CNAME is an alias for a real domain name. Thus, if luvyou.com is a
CNAME for luv.com, accessing howluv.com would be the same as accessing
luv.com. That is, you would arrive at the same place. CNAME's, however, do
not have their own server space or userid's. You cannot send mail to an
address at a CNAME. CNAME's must also be registered with a domain
registration agency in order to resolve.
MX records specify a list of hosts that are configured to receive mail sent
to a domain name. Every host that receives mail should have an MX record, if
one is not found at the time the mail is delivered, an MX value will be
imputed with a cost of 0 and a destination of the host itself.
