What is an alias record?

An alias record is a special type of record that only a few registrars support that allows you to map a domain to another domain (very similar to CNAME) but crucially allows you to map the “root” domain to something else. Practically this matters because it allows someone to set up their custom domain with us as e.g. example.com as opposed to www.example.com
