Every single domain name which is registered and hosted has lots of DNS records - some of them are created automatically when you host a domain, others can be set up by hand if required. For example, the A record of a domain address is its IP address i.e. this record reveals 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 name for unconventional purposes, for instance a Voice-over-IP service. The ability to set up and modify particular records allows you to have different services with different providers if, for example, your present host provides good web hosting, but has issues with the email service, or you simply prefer to get a certain service from a certain company. Though you can create and edit these records freely and with no restrictions as you own a given domain name, some companies charge extra to give you this option.
Full DNS Management in Cloud Website Hosting
The user-friendly Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each and every Linux cloud website hosting plan that we offer, will provide you with total access to all domain addresses that are hosted within the account. With just a couple of clicks you will be able to see the DNS records for each and every domain name you host or subdomain which you set up. You may also create or modify any kind of record that you would like, depending on what you need to do - A, AAAA, MX, TXT, SRV, CNAME, and so forth. This will allow you to define an email server, point a domain to a VOIP or online game server provided by another company, create forwarding, and so forth. You may even register private name servers for each domain you have acquired through us and use them instead of our standard ones not just for this domain, but also for any other domain which will be hosted inside the same account. The full DNS management service is provided totally free of charge.
Full DNS Management in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you buy a semi-dedicated server from our company, we are going to provide you with full control over all DNS records of any domain name or subdomain in 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 individuals without any experience, plus it comes with an extensive help section that features not just articles, but also in-depth video tutorials. With several 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 different providers for a given domain address since you can have separate A (web server) and MX (e-mail server) records. You'll also be able to set up AAAA, SRV, TXT and CNAME records to forward your domain or use it for a particular non-website service including VOIP, online game server host, and so on. If you wish, you may also create private name servers for each of the domain addresses registered through our company absolutely free.
