Any active domain that's added in a hosting account has a variety of records that allow it to perform properly. In the common case, the name servers (NS records) show where the domain is hosted and they're set on the side of the registrar company, but on the lower level there are specific records set through the hosting company such as A (IP address of the website/server), MX (e-mail server), SRV (employing a domain address for non-website purposes on a specific port number such as Voice-over-IP), and so on. With access to these records and by being able to edit them, you can have your site with company A and your e-mails with company B, for instance. This offers you more overall flexibility because you can choose the best provider for each of these services and you don't need to stick to a single company. After you select a hosting company, you have to make certain that you have access to all DNS records freely since some companies have an additional fee for this feature.

Full DNS Management in Cloud Hosting

The user-friendly Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each and every Linux cloud hosting that we offer, will provide you with total access to all domain names that are hosted inside the account. With just a few clicks you will be able to see the DNS records for each domain name which you host or subdomain which you create. You may also create or edit any type of record that you'd like, depending on what you would like to do - A, AAAA, MX, TXT, SRV, CNAME, and so on. This will permit you to define a mail server, direct a domain name to a VOIP or online game server provided by another company, create forwarding, etc. You can even register private name servers for any domain name that you've purchased through us and use them instead of our default ones not only for this domain, but also for any other domain which will be hosted inside the same account. The complete DNS administration service is offered free of charge.

Full DNS Management in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you purchase a semi-dedicated server from us, we'll provide you with 100 % control over all DNS records of any domain name 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 people with no experience, and it provides an extensive help section that features not just articles, but also detailed video tutorials. With several clicks you can see all current records and you can set up new ones just as easily. This will enable you to use different services with separate companies for a given domain name as you can have separate A (web server) and MX (mail server) records. You will also be able to set up AAAA, SRV, TXT as well as CNAME records to forward your domain name or use it for a specific non-website service such as VOIP, online game server host, and so on. If you want, you may even create private name servers for any one of the domains registered through our company absolutely free.
