Each and every domain that is registered and hosted has a lot of DNS records - some of them are created automatically when you host a domain, others can be set up by hand if necessary. For example, the A record of a domain address is its IP address i.e. this record shows where the website is situated; the MX records reveal where the e-mails are handled, while through an SRV record you can use a domain for unconventional purposes, like a Voice-over-IP service. The ability to create and modify particular records permits you to have different services with different providers if, for example, your current host provides dependable web hosting, but has problems with the email service, or you simply prefer to get a specific service from a certain company. Although you can set up and edit these records freely and without any restrictions as you own a given domain name, a lot of companies charge extra to give you this option.
Full DNS Management in Shared Website Hosting
The user-friendly Hepsia hosting Control Panel, that comes with each and every Linux shared website hosting that we offer, provides you with 100 % access to all domain addresses that are hosted within the account. With simply a few clicks you'll be able to see the DNS records for every domain name that you host or subdomain that you create. You can also set up or modify any sort of record you want, based on what you would like to do - A, AAAA, MX, TXT, SRV, CNAME, etc. This will permit 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, etc. You can even register private name servers for every domain name that you have acquired through us and use them instead of our standard ones not only for this domain, but also for any other domain that'll be hosted inside the same account. The full DNS management service is offered free of charge.
Full DNS Management in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you acquire a semi-dedicated server through us, we are going to provide you with complete control over all DNS records of every single domain name or subdomain within your web hosting account. The DNS Records tool of our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel is simple and intuitive enough to be used even by people with no experience, and it comes with an extensive help section that features not just articles, but also comprehensive video tutorials. With several mouse clicks you can see all current records and you can create new ones just as easily. This will enable you to use different services with different providers for a given domain since you can have separate A (web server) and MX (email server) records. You'll also be able to create AAAA, SRV, TXT as well as CNAME records to forward your domain address or use it for a certain non-website service such as VOIP, online game server host, and many others. If you would like, you may even set up private name servers for any of the domain addresses registered through our company absolutely free.
