Any active domain which is added in a hosting account features a number of records that permit it to perform properly. In the common 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 certain 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 many others. Having access to these records and by being able to modify them, you could have your web site with company A and your emails with company B, for instance. This offers you more flexibility as you can select the best provider for each of these services and you don't have to stick with only one company. When you select a hosting company, you have to make sure that you can access all DNS records freely because some providers have an additional fee for this function.

Full DNS Management in Shared Hosting

The user-friendly Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each and every Linux shared hosting we offer, will provide you with full access to all domains which are hosted in the account. With just a few mouse clicks you will be able to see the DNS records of any domain name which you host or subdomain that you create. You may also set up or edit any sort of record that you like, based upon what you need to do - A, AAAA, MX, TXT, SRV, CNAME, and so on. This will allow you to define an email server, direct a domain address 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 name that you have purchased 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 inside the same account. The full DNS administration service is provided totally free of charge.

Full DNS Management in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you buy a semi-dedicated server from our company, we are going to provide you with full control over all DNS records of every single domain name or subdomain in 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 experience, plus it comes with an extensive help section which includes not only articles, but also detailed video tutorials. With a few mouse clicks you can see all existing records and you can create new ones just as easily. This will allow you to use different services with separate providers for a given domain address as you can have separate A (web server) and MX (mail server) records. Additionally, you'll be able to set up AAAA, SRV, TXT as well as CNAME records to forward your domain address or use it for a particular non-website service such as VOIP, game server host, and so forth. If you want, you may also set up private name servers for any of the domain addresses registered through our company totally free.
