Any active domain name which is added in a hosting account features a number of records that allow it to function properly. In the standard case, the name servers (NS records) show the location where the Internet domain is hosted and they're set on the side of the registrar company, but on the lower level there are certain records set through the hosting company such as A (IP address of the website/server), MX (email server), SRV (employing a domain address for non-website purposes on a specific port number such as Voice-over-IP), and so on. Having access to these records and by having the ability to edit them, you can have your site with company A and your emails with company B, for example. This gives you more flexibility as you can select the best provider for each of these services and you don't have to stick to one company. As soon as 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 Shared Web Hosting
The user-friendly Hepsia hosting CP, that comes with each shared web hosting plan we offer, provides you with full access to all domains that are hosted inside the account. With only a couple of clicks you'll be able to see the DNS records of any domain you host or subdomain which you set up. You could also set up or edit any sort of record you want, based upon what you would like to do - A, AAAA, MX, TXT, SRV, CNAME, and so on. This will enable you to define a mail server, direct a domain name to a VOIP or online game server provided by another company, create forwarding, and so forth. You can even register private name servers for any domain that you have bought 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 complete DNS administration service is offered absolutely free of charge.
Full DNS Management in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server through us, we will provide you with total control over all DNS records of every single domain name 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 without any experience, and it comes with a comprehensive help section that includes not just articles, but also detailed video tutorials. With a couple of mouse clicks you can see all present records and you could set up new ones just as easily. This will permit you to use different services with different companies for a given domain as you can have separate A (web server) and MX (mail server) records. You'll also be able to set up AAAA, SRV, TXT and CNAME records to forward your domain name or use it for a particular non-website service including VOIP, online game server host, etc. If you wish, you may even create private name servers for any one of the domains registered through our company absolutely free.
