Any active domain name which is added in a hosting account features a number of records that permit it to function properly. In the standard case, the name servers (NS records) show the location where the domain is hosted and they are set on the side of the registrar company, but on the lower level there are particular records created through the hosting company like A (IP address of the website/server), MX (e mail server), SRV (employing a domain for non-website purposes on a certain port number such as Voice-over-IP), etc. By having access to these records and by having the capacity to modify them, you may have your site with company A and your e-mail messages with company B, for instance. This offers you more overall flexibility as you can pick the best provider for every single one of these services and you don't have to stick to only one company. After you pick a hosting company, you have to make certain that you can access all DNS records freely since some companies have an additional fee for this feature.

Full DNS Management in Shared Website Hosting

The user-friendly Hepsia hosting CP, that comes with each and every Linux shared website hosting plan that we offer, offers you 100 % access to all domain addresses which are hosted in the account. With only a few clicks you'll be able to see the DNS records for each domain name which you host or subdomain which you create. You may also set up or modify any sort of record that you would like, based on what you wish to do - A, AAAA, MX, TXT, SRV, CNAME, etc. This will enable you to define an e-mail server, point a domain name to a VOIP or online game server provided by another company, set up forwarding, and so on. You may also register private name servers for every domain name that you've acquired through us and use them instead of our default ones not just for this domain, but also for any other domain which will be hosted inside the same account. The full DNS administration service is offered free of charge.

Full DNS Management in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you get a semi-dedicated server through us, we'll provide you with full control over all DNS records of every domain or subdomain inside your web 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 a comprehensive help section that includes not just articles, but also thorough video tutorials. With a few mouse clicks you can see all present records and you can set up new ones just as easily. This will permit you to use different services with different providers for a given domain address since you can have separate A (web server) and MX (mail server) records. You'll be able to set up AAAA, SRV, TXT or CNAME records to forward your domain address or use it for a certain non-website service including VOIP, game server host, and so on. If you'd like, you may also set up private name servers for any one of the domain addresses registered through our company at no extra cost.
