DNAME-Records (Non-Terminal DNS Name Redirection)

A DNAME-record is used to map / rename an entire sub-tree of the DNS name space to another domain.

It differs from the CNAME-record which maps only a single node of the name space.

To create a new DNAME-record, right-click a zone in the left list in the DNS Records window, and select "Other new record" from the pop-up menu.

This record type is defined in RFC2672.
