Any active domain name that is added in a hosting account features a number of records which allow it to work properly. In the typical case, the name servers (NS records) show where the domain is hosted and they're set on the side of the registrar company, but on the lower level there are certain records created through the hosting company such as A (IP address of the website/server), MX (e-mail server), SRV (employing a domain address for non-website purposes on a particular port number such as Voice-over-IP), and so on. With access to these records and by being able to edit them, you can have your website with company A and your e-mails with company B, for illustration. This gives you more flexibility as you can pick the best provider for every one of these services and you do not have to stick with one company. As soon as you select a hosting company, you have to make sure that you have access to all DNS records freely as some companies have an additional fee for this feature.
Full DNS Management in Shared Hosting
The user-friendly Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with each and every Linux shared package we offer, offers you 100 % access to all domain addresses which are hosted within the account. With just a few clicks you will be able to see the DNS records for each and every domain that you host or subdomain that you set up. You can also set up or edit any sort of record that you like, based upon what you would like to do - A, AAAA, MX, TXT, SRV, CNAME, and so forth. This will allow you to define a mail server, point a domain name to a VOIP or online game server provided by another company, create forwarding, and so on. You may even register private name servers for any domain you have purchased through us and use them instead of our default ones not just for this domain, but also for any other domain that'll be hosted within the same account. The whole DNS administration service is offered absolutely free of charge.
Full DNS Management in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server through us, we are going to provide you with total control over all DNS records of every domain or subdomain within your hosting account. The DNS Records tool of our in-house built Hepsia CP is simple and intuitive enough to be used even by individuals without experience, and it provides an extensive help section which includes not only articles, but also thorough video tutorials. With a few clicks you can see all present records and you can create new ones just as easily. This will allow you to use different services with separate providers for a given domain because you can have separate A (web server) and MX (e-mail server) records. Additionally, you'll be able to set up AAAA, SRV, TXT and CNAME records to forward your domain name or use it for a particular non-website service including VOIP, game server host, and so on. If you wish, you may also set up private name servers for each of the domain addresses registered through our company at no extra cost.
