Any active domain name which is added in a hosting account has a variety of records which allow it to work properly. In the common case, the name servers (NS records) show where the domain name is hosted and they're set on the side of the registrar company, but on the lower level there are particular 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 specific port number like Voice-over-IP), and many others. Having access to these records and by having the ability to modify them, you could have your site with company A and your e-mail messages with company B, for instance. This offers you more flexibility as you can pick the best provider for every single one of these services and you do not have to stick to one company. After you pick a hosting company, you have to make sure that you have access to all DNS records freely since some providers have an additional fee for this function.
Full DNS Management in Hosting
The user-friendly Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with each Linux hosting package that we offer, gives you total access to all domain addresses which are hosted in the account. With simply a couple of clicks you'll be able to see the DNS records of any domain name that you host or subdomain which you create. You could also set up or modify any sort of record that you'd like, based on what you need to do - A, AAAA, MX, TXT, SRV, CNAME, and so on. This will enable you to define an email server, direct a domain to a VOIP or online game server provided by another company, create forwarding, and so forth. You can also register private name servers for each Internet domain that you have acquired through us and use them instead of our default ones not only for this domain, but also for any other domain that'll be hosted inside the same account. The full DNS administration service is offered totally free of charge.
Full DNS Management in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server through our company, we're going to provide you with full control over all DNS records of every domain name or subdomain inside your hosting account. The DNS Records tool of our in-house built Hepsia CP is simple and intuitive enough to be used even by people without experience, plus it comes with an extensive help section which includes not just articles, but also comprehensive video tutorials. With a couple of clicks you can see all existing records and you could set up new ones just as easily. This will allow you to use different services with different companies for a given domain name as you can have separate A (web server) and MX (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 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 free of charge.
