Canonical Name Record. This DNS record specifies that a domain name is an alias for another domain, which is the "canonical" domain. For example "www.YourFirstProduct.com" is an alias of "YourFirstProduct.com" with the latter being the canonical name. (And this canonical name will need to have an A record that specifies the IP Address.) See also A Record.
