Any active domain name that is added in a hosting account has a number of records that allow it to function properly. In the typical case, the name servers (NS records) show the location where the domain name is hosted and they are 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 for non-website purposes on a particular port number like Voice-over-IP), and so on. Having access to these records and by being in a position to edit them, you could have your site with company A and your emails with company B, for example. This gives you more overall flexibility because you can choose the best provider for each of these services and you don't have to stick to only one company. As soon as you choose a hosting company, you have to make certain that you have access to all DNS records freely as some providers have an extra fee for this feature.
Full DNS Management in Shared Web Hosting
The user-friendly Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with every single Linux shared web hosting that we offer, will provide you with full access to all domain names which are hosted inside the account. With just several mouse clicks you'll be able to see the DNS records for every domain that you host or subdomain which you create. You could also set up or edit any sort of record that you like, depending on what you would like to do - A, AAAA, MX, TXT, SRV, CNAME, and so forth. This will permit you to define an email server, point a domain to a VOIP or online game server provided by another company, set up forwarding, and so on. You can even register private name servers for each domain you have acquired through us and use them instead of our standard 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 provided free of charge.
Full DNS Management in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you buy a semi-dedicated server from our company, we're going to provide you with full control over all DNS records of every single domain name or subdomain inside 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 with no experience, and it offers an in-depth help section that includes not only articles, but also comprehensive video tutorials. With a couple of clicks you can see all current records and you can set up new ones just as easily. This will permit you to use different services with separate providers for a given domain address because you can have separate A (web server) and MX (e-mail server) records. You will also be able to create AAAA, SRV, TXT or CNAME records to forward your domain or use it for a specific non-website service including VOIP, game server host, and so forth. If you wish, you can even create private name servers for any one of the domains registered through our company at no extra cost.
