A Canonical Name record (CNAME) is a type of resource record in the DNS which maps one domain name to another, referred to as the Canonical Name. This can prove convenient when running multiple services from a single IP address.

Example: 

NAME                    TYPE   VALUE
--------------------------------------------------
bar.example.com CNAME foo.example.com
foo.example.com A 192.0.2.23
