Any active domain that is added in a hosting account has a variety of records that permit it to work properly. In the standard 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 (e-mail server), SRV (using an Internet domain for non-website purposes on a specific port number like Voice-over-IP), etc. By having access to these records and by having the ability to modify them, you can have your website with company A and your e-mails with company B, for instance. This offers you more overall flexibility as you can select the best provider for every single one of these services and you don't have to stick with one company. When you choose a hosting company, you have to make sure that you have access to all DNS records freely since some companies have an additional fee for this feature.
Full DNS Management in Shared Website Hosting
With each and every shared website hosting service which we offer you can set up, delete or modify any DNS record for any Internet domain or subdomain hosted in your account with ease. The Hepsia Control Panel we offer with the shared accounts comes with a simple and easy-to-use tool which will allow you to see all existing records and set up new ones with a couple of mouse clicks. You're going to be able to set up A, MX, CNAME, TXT, SRV and AAAA records, that will offer you full control over your domain addresses plus the chance to pick the company that will provide you with a given service. For instance, if your site is on our state-of-the-art cloud platform, it will need a couple of clicks to point your e-mails to be managed by a different provider. In contrast to other registrar and web hosting companies, we do not charge an additional fee to offer you the DNS management service.
Full DNS Management in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you get a semi-dedicated server through our company, we'll provide you with complete control over all DNS records of every single domain name or subdomain in your web hosting account. The DNS Records tool of our in-house built Hepsia CP is simple and intuitive enough to be used even by people with no experience, plus it offers a comprehensive help section which includes not just articles, but also comprehensive video tutorials. With a couple of mouse clicks you can see all present records and you can set up new ones just as easily. This will enable you to use different services with separate companies for a given domain because you can have separate A (web server) and MX (e-mail server) records. You'll also be able to create AAAA, SRV, TXT as well as CNAME records to forward your domain or use it for a certain non-website service including VOIP, online game server host, etc. If you want, you can even set up private name servers for any of the domain names registered through our company free of charge.
