Any active domain name that's added in a hosting account features a variety of records that allow it to function 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 specific records created through the hosting company like A (IP address of the website/server), MX (e mail server), SRV (employing a domain address for non-website purposes on a certain port number such as Voice-over-IP), etc. Having access to these records and by being in a position to modify them, you can have your website with company A and your e-mail messages with company B, for example. This offers you more freedom since you can pick the best provider for every single one of these services and you don't have to stick to a single company. As soon as you pick a hosting company, you have to make sure that you can access all DNS records freely because some providers have an extra fee for this feature.
Full DNS Management in Cloud Hosting
The user-friendly Hepsia hosting Control Panel, that comes with each and every Linux cloud hosting plan that we offer, gives you 100 % access to all domain names which are hosted in the account. With simply a couple of clicks you're going to be able to see the DNS records for each and every domain name which you host or subdomain which you set up. You may also set up or modify any type of record that you would like, based upon what you wish to do - A, AAAA, MX, TXT, SRV, CNAME, and so forth. This will permit 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 on. You may also register private name servers for every domain name 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 will be hosted within the same account. The whole DNS administration service is offered free of charge.
Full DNS Management in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server through us, we are going to provide you with complete control over all DNS records of every domain or subdomain within your hosting account. The DNS Records tool of our in-house built Hepsia CP is simple and intuitive enough to be used even by individuals with no experience, and it offers an in-depth help section which includes not just articles, but also in-depth video tutorials. With a few clicks you can see all existing records and you could create new ones just as easily. This will allow you to use different services with different companies for a given domain name since you can have separate A (web server) and MX (e-mail server) records. You'll also be able to create AAAA, SRV, TXT or CNAME records to forward your domain or use it for a particular non-website service such as VOIP, game server host, and so on. If you'd like, you can even set up private name servers for any of the domain names registered through our company totally free.
