Any active domain that's added in a hosting account includes a number of records that permit it to function properly. In the common case, the name servers (NS records) show where the domain is hosted and they are 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 (using a domain address for non-website purposes on a particular port number such as Voice-over-IP), and so on. With access to these records and by being in a position to modify them, you may have your site with company A and your emails with company B, for example. This offers you more freedom since you can pick the best provider for each of these services and you don't need to stick with one company. As soon as you pick a hosting company, you have to make sure that you can access all DNS records freely because some companies have an extra fee for this function.
Full DNS Management in Cloud Web Hosting
The user-friendly Hepsia hosting Control Panel, that comes with each and every Linux cloud web hosting service that we offer, will provide you with full access to all domain names which are hosted in the account. With just a few mouse clicks you're going to be able to see the DNS records for each and every domain you host or subdomain which you set up. You can also create or edit any type of record that you like, depending on what you need to do - A, AAAA, MX, TXT, SRV, CNAME, etc. This will allow you to define an e-mail server, point a domain address to a VOIP or online game server provided by another company, set up forwarding, and so on. You can even register private name servers for any domain name that you've bought through us and use them instead of our standard ones not only for this domain, but also for any other domain which will be hosted within the same account. The whole DNS management service is offered absolutely free of charge.
Full DNS Management in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You are going to have 100 % control over the DNS records of your domains and subdomains if you get one of our semi-dedicated server plans. The accounts are maintained through our custom Hepsia CP and one of its features is an innovative, albeit very easy to use section where you could see, set up or modify any kind of record - A, MX, CNAME, NS, AAAA, TXT and SRV. There is no fee for that and you'll have absolute freedom with regard to managing your domain addresses and choosing the best service for them. For instance, with just a few mouse clicks you can set up any of the domain addresses inside your account to have its website handled by one company and its e-mails by another, you can even use a domain name as a host name for a VOIP server, which runs on an independent machine. You could also create and use private name servers so that you can give your domains more credibility in case that somebody checks them.
