Much has been said about HTML5 and its proponent frequently compare HTML5 to Flash. Many of those proponents try to malign Adobe’s Flash in many ways. Neil Webb has already written a perfect article presenting his counter-points to HTML5 proponents.
I don’t wish to talk about how good or bad the features offered by HTML5 are when compared to Flash’s features.
Let’s see if you can use HTML5 in your projects today!

It happened to me when I added a CNAME record for “codecurry.com”.
Simple solution: I deleted the CNAME and used A Record to point my root domain “.codecurry.com” to my hosting server.
CNAME Records use host-names to point to a server, while an A Record uses host’s IP Address to point to a server.
I have been using Google Apps for email of this account since a year without a glitch. But I had to update this domain’s A Records and CNAME. So instead of changing my A Record, I deleted it and created a CNAME record to point to my hosting server. Too bad, Google Apps didn’t like it. Emails sent to me started bouncing back to senders.
Yes, it is possible to add any CNAME Records even when using Google Apps Custom Domain Email. So it will work if you add sub-domains hello.codecurry.com or files.codecurry.com. It will simply not work if a CNAME is used for the root domain, as in “.codecurry.com”. The root domain should only be pointed to your host server using A Record.
Hope this will help someone facing this issue with Google Custom Domains.
If you need more information, its always available on Google’s Support pages. And for this particular issue, the following page would be a good start:
