Any active domain name that is added in a hosting account has a variety of records which allow it to perform properly. In the typical case, the name servers (NS records) show the location where the Internet domain is hosted and they are set on the side of the registrar company, but on the lower level there are specific records set through the hosting company such as A (IP address of the website/server), MX (email server), SRV (using a domain address for non-website purposes on a particular port number such as Voice-over-IP), etc. By having access to these records and by being able to edit them, you may have your website with company A and your e-mail messages with company B, for instance. This offers you more freedom since you can pick the best provider for every one of these services and you do not have to stick with a single company. Whenever you choose a hosting company, you have to make sure that you can access all DNS records freely since some companies have an additional fee for this feature.
Full DNS Management in Website Hosting
The user-friendly Hepsia hosting CP, that comes with every single Linux website hosting package we offer, offers you 100 % access to all domain names that are hosted inside the account. With only a couple of mouse clicks you're going to be able to see the DNS records for each domain that you host or subdomain that you set up. You may also set up or modify any sort of record that you'd like, based on what you would like to do - A, AAAA, MX, TXT, SRV, CNAME, etc. This will permit you to define an e-mail server, direct a domain address to a VOIP or online game server provided by another company, create forwarding, etc. You can even register private name servers for each domain name you have acquired through us and use them instead of our default ones not just for this domain name, but also for any other domain that'll be hosted inside the same account. The whole DNS administration service is offered free of charge.
Full DNS Management in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you get a semi-dedicated server through us, we're going to provide you with 100 % control over all DNS records of every single domain name or subdomain in your hosting account. The DNS Records tool of our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel is simple and intuitive enough to be used even by individuals without any experience, plus it comes with an extensive help section that includes not only articles, but also in-depth video tutorials. With several mouse clicks you can see all current records and you could create new ones just as easily. This will enable you to use different services with different providers for a given domain since you can have separate A (web server) and MX (email server) records. You will also be able to set up AAAA, SRV, TXT as well as CNAME records to forward your domain or use it for a specific non-website service including VOIP, game server host, and many others. If you wish, you may even create private name servers for each of the domain names registered through our company totally free.
