Any active domain that's added in a hosting account includes a variety of records that enable it to function properly. In the common case, the name servers (NS records) show where the Internet domain 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 (email server), SRV (employing an Internet domain for non-website purposes on a specific port number such as Voice-over-IP), and so on. Having access to these records and by having the ability to edit them, you can have your site with company A and your emails with company B, for illustration. This gives you more flexibility as you can choose the best provider for each of these services and you don't have to stick with a single company. After you choose a hosting company, you have to make sure that you can access all DNS records freely as some companies have an additional fee for this function.
Full DNS Management in Shared Hosting
The user-friendly Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with every single Linux shared hosting service that we offer, provides you with full access to all domains which are hosted in the account. With just a few clicks you are going to be able to see the DNS records for every domain name that you host or subdomain which you set up. You could also set up or edit any type of record you want, based upon what you wish to do - A, AAAA, MX, TXT, SRV, CNAME, and so forth. This will allow you to define an email server, direct a domain name to a VOIP or online game server provided by another company, set up forwarding, etc. You can even register private name servers for each domain name that you've acquired through us and use them instead of our standard ones not only for this domain name, but also for any other domain that will be hosted within the same account. The complete DNS management service is offered free of charge.
Full DNS Management in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you buy a semi-dedicated server through us, we'll provide you with 100 % control over all DNS records of every domain address or subdomain within 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 people without any experience, and it provides an in-depth help section which includes not only articles, but also in-depth video tutorials. With a couple of clicks you can see all existing records and you can set up new ones just as easily. This will enable you to use different services with different companies for a given domain address as you can have separate A (web server) and MX (email server) records. You will also be able to set up AAAA, SRV, TXT or CNAME records to forward your domain address or use it for a particular non-website service like VOIP, online game server host, and many others. If you would like, you may even set up private name servers for each of the domains registered through our company at no extra cost.
