Any active domain name that is added in a hosting account features a variety of records that enable it to function properly. In the typical 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 specific 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 so on. With access to these records and by being in a position to edit them, you could have your site with company A and your e-mails with company B, for illustration. This gives you more overall flexibility because you can select the best provider for each of these services and you don't need to stick to a single company. After you pick a hosting company, you have to make sure that you have access to all DNS records freely as some companies have an additional fee for this feature.

Full DNS Management in Cloud Hosting

The user-friendly Hepsia hosting Control Panel, that comes with each Linux cloud hosting package we offer, gives you full access to all domains which are hosted inside the account. With just several mouse clicks you'll be able to see the DNS records for each domain you host or subdomain which you set up. You can also create or modify any sort of record that you'd like, based on what you wish to do - A, AAAA, MX, TXT, SRV, CNAME, etc. This will allow you to define an email server, point a domain name to a VOIP or online game server provided by another company, set up forwarding, etc. You can even register private name servers for any domain that you've obtained through our company and use them instead of our default ones not only for this domain name, but also for any other domain which will be hosted in the same account. The complete DNS administration service is provided free of charge.

Full DNS Management in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you acquire a semi-dedicated server through us, we're going to provide you with 100 % control over all DNS records of every single 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 people without any experience, plus it provides an in-depth help section that includes not just articles, but also comprehensive video tutorials. With a couple of clicks you can see all current records and you could create new ones just as easily. This will permit you to use different services with different companies for a given domain since you can have separate A (web server) and MX (mail server) records. You'll also be able to set up AAAA, SRV, TXT as well as CNAME records to forward your domain address or use it for a specific non-website service including VOIP, online game server host, and so forth. If you would like, you can even set up private name servers for any of the domain addresses registered through our company free of charge.
