Any active domain that's added in a hosting account features a number of records that enable it to work properly. In the common case, the name servers (NS records) show 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 like A (IP address of the website/server), MX (e-mail server), SRV (using a domain for non-website purposes on a certain port number like Voice-over-IP), etc. Having access to these records and by having the capacity to edit them, you can have your web site with company A and your emails with company B, for example. This gives you more overall flexibility since you can choose the best provider for every one of these services and you do not have to stick with one company. When you select a hosting company, you have to make sure that you can access all DNS records freely as some companies have an extra fee for this feature.
Full DNS Management in Shared Website Hosting
The user-friendly Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with each shared website hosting we offer, provides you with total access to all domain names which are hosted within the account. With simply a few clicks you'll be able to see the DNS records for each domain name which you host or subdomain that you create. You could also set up or modify any kind of record that you like, based on what you need to do - A, AAAA, MX, TXT, SRV, CNAME, etc. This will allow you to define an e-mail server, direct a domain address to a VOIP or online game server provided by another company, create forwarding, etc. You may even register private name servers for each Internet domain that you've purchased through our company and use them instead of our standard ones not only for this domain, but also for any other domain that'll be hosted within the same account. The whole DNS management service is offered free of charge.
Full DNS Management in Semi-dedicated Servers
With our semi-dedicated servers, you will have complete control of the records of every Internet domain or subdomain hosted within the account. Our cutting-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel features a simple-to-use tool, which will make the creation and control over DNS records very easy even if you have little experience or you haven't done such a thing before. It will require no more than a few mouse clicks to create or modify any sort of record - A, AAAA, MX, CNAME, SRV, TXT. This way, you can choose the provider you'll use for a particular service, so you can have your web site here and the e-mails with a different company or the other way around, direct your Internet domains to other domains, create a VOIP service that runs on its own server or even multiple servers, and so forth. The DNS management option is available with every semi-dedicated plan by default and at no extra cost.
