Any active domain name that is added in a hosting account has a variety of records which allow it to work properly. In the common 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 created through the hosting company such as A (IP address of the website/server), MX (e mail server), SRV (using a domain for non-website purposes on a particular port number like Voice-over-IP), and many others. With access to these records and by being able to edit them, you can have your website with company A and your e-mail messages with company B, for instance. This gives you more independence since you can choose the best provider for every one of these services and you don't have to stick with one company. Whenever you select a hosting company, you have to make sure that you have access to all DNS records freely since some companies have an additional fee for this function.
Full DNS Management in Hosting
The user-friendly Hepsia hosting CP, that comes with every Linux hosting that we offer, gives you full access to all domain names which are hosted within the account. With simply a few mouse clicks you'll be able to see the DNS records for each domain name which you host or subdomain which you create. You could also set up or edit any type of record you want, based upon what you need to do - A, AAAA, MX, TXT, SRV, CNAME, etc. This will permit you to define an e-mail server, direct a domain to a VOIP or online game server provided by another company, create forwarding, and so forth. You can also register private name servers for any Internet domain that you've acquired through us and use them instead of our standard ones not just for this domain name, but also for any other domain that will be hosted inside the same account. The full DNS administration service is offered absolutely free of charge.
Full DNS Management in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages, you will have total control over the records of any Internet domain or subdomain hosted in the account. Our cutting-edge Hepsia hosting CP includes a simple-to-use tool, which will make the creation and control over DNS records very simple even if you have little experience or you have not done such a thing before. It will take just a couple of clicks to create or modify any kind of record - A, AAAA, MX, CNAME, SRV, TXT. This way, you can select the provider that you're going to use for a given service, so you can have your website here and the emails with a different provider or the other way around, direct your domain names to other domains, create a VOIP service that runs on its own server or even multiple servers, and so forth. The DNS management option is available with each semi-dedicated plan by default and at no additional cost.
