Thank you for your question HoldenComeau!

You can <a href="http://www.inmotionhosting.com/support/domain-names/dns-nameserver-changes/add-cname-record" target="_blank">create a cname</a> or <a href="http://www.inmotionhosting.com/support/domain-names/dns-nameserver-changes/a-record-change" target="_blank">A record</a> in the Simple DNS Zone editor. If you are on a <a href="http://www.inmotionhosting.com/vps-hosting">VPS</a> or <a href="http://www.inmotionhosting.com/dedicated-servers" target="_blank">Dedicated server</a>, you can use the <a href="http://www.inmotionhosting.com/support/edu/cpanel/cpanel-manage-domains/advanced-dns-editor-cpanel" target="_blank">Advanced DNS Zone editor</a>.

Shared servers no not have access to cnames like ftp, mail, cpanel, webmail, and so forth. To have a cname changed on a shared server, you will need to <a href="http://www.inmotionhosting.com/support/website/website-troubleshooting/how-to-get-great-technical-support" target="_blank">have support add them</a> in the backend. Please see the following link for more information.
