The domain name in the browser is the domain name presented to the web  
server in the host header field. That name must resolve, somehow, to  
the IP address of the server. That can be either with an address  
record of that name or a CNAME record of that name, referring to  
another name that resolves to the correct address.

Without knowing your intent, I don't think this list can be any more  
helpful than that.
