Any active domain which is added in a hosting account has 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 name is hosted and they're set on the side of the registrar company, but on the lower level there are particular records set through the hosting company such as A (IP address of the website/server), MX (email server), SRV (using a domain address for non-website purposes on a particular port number like Voice-over-IP), and many others. By having access to these records and by being able to edit them, you can have your site with company A and your emails with company B, for instance. This offers you more freedom because you can pick the best provider for each of these services and you don't have to stick with one company. After you pick a hosting company, you have to make certain that you can access all DNS records freely since some providers have an additional fee for this feature.

Full DNS Management in Cloud Website Hosting

The user-friendly Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each Linux cloud website hosting that we offer, will provide you with 100 % access to all domains which are hosted inside the account. With simply a couple of mouse clicks you'll be able to see the DNS records for each and every domain name that you host or subdomain which you create. You could also create or edit any kind of record that you'd like, based upon what you need to do - A, AAAA, MX, TXT, SRV, CNAME, etc. This will allow you to define an e-mail server, point a domain name to a VOIP or online game server provided by another company, create forwarding, and so forth. You may even register private name servers for every domain name that you've acquired through our company and use them instead of our standard ones not just for this domain name, but also for any other domain that will be hosted in the same account. The complete DNS administration service is provided absolutely free of charge.

Full DNS Management in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you acquire a semi-dedicated server from us, we'll provide you with full control over all DNS records of any domain 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 individuals with no experience, and it comes with an in-depth help section that features not only articles, but also comprehensive video tutorials. With several clicks you can see all existing records and you could create new ones just as easily. This will enable you to use different services with different companies for a given domain name because you can have separate A (web server) and MX (e-mail server) records. Additionally, you'll be able to set up AAAA, SRV, TXT and CNAME records to forward your domain or use it for a specific non-website service such as VOIP, game server host, etc. If you want, you may also create private name servers for each of the domains registered through our company absolutely free.
