A CNAME record (or Canonical Name) allows you to create a subdomain/host that will act as an alias for another host set up to answer for your domain. For example, you could create blog.uniregistryexamples.link as a subdomain and set a CNAME record to point it to your Tumblr blog at “uniblog.tumblr.com.” which has been set to answer for the domain.  Then traffic from your domain name would be sent to your Tumblr blog while leaving your domain name in the address bar.

The receiving host must be configured to answer for your domain name.
