Anyone out there in EE land a 1&1 customer?

I need help with this message (see graphic).  It's a scary message.
Based on the message, it looks like I'll lose all of my existing settings if I create a cname record.  I don't want to lose my existing settings.  I have an existing site aaa.com
I want to have another domain bbb.com directed to aaa.com.

Or is the message misleading.

Help!

It means you should open a support ticket and ask 1&1.  The level of control, automation, and reliability vary greatly for different host, and even for different account type on the same host.

So when you are not sure if something bad will happen, then ask support.
