A CNAME (Canonical Name) is used to alias one domain record to another. This is frequently used together with apache name-based virtual hosting
. IMPORTANT NOTE - unlike many other record types which can share the same record (for example, tjhsst.edu has A, MX, NS, and SOA records), CNAMEs cannot share a record with any other record type and will override any other record defined. This is why tjhsst.edu has an A record for www's IP instead of being CNAME'd to www
webmail.tjhsst.edu. IN CNAME www.tjhsst.edu.
