Every domain that's 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. As an example, the A record of a domain name is its IP address i.e. this record reveals where the website is located; the MX records reveal where the e-mails are handled, while through an SRV record you can use a domain address for unconventional purposes, including a Voice-over-IP service. The ability to set up and modify certain records allows you to have different services with different providers if, for instance, your current host provides dependable web hosting, but has difficulties with the email service, or you simply prefer to get a particular service from a particular company. Although you should be able to create and edit these records freely and with no limitations as you own a given domain name, many companies charge extra to give you this option.
Full DNS Management in Hosting
The user-friendly Hepsia hosting CP, that comes with each Linux hosting we offer, offers you total access to all domains which are hosted within the account. With simply several clicks you are going to be able to see the DNS records of any domain name that you host or subdomain which you create. You could also set up or modify any kind of record that you like, based upon what you need to do - A, AAAA, MX, TXT, SRV, CNAME, and so forth. This will enable you to define a mail server, direct a domain 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 Internet domain you have purchased through us and use them instead of our standard ones not just for this domain, but also for any other domain that will be hosted within the same account. The full DNS administration service is provided absolutely free of charge.
Full DNS Management in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server from us, we will provide you with full control over all DNS records of every domain address or subdomain inside your hosting account. The DNS Records tool of our in-house built Hepsia CP is simple and intuitive enough to be used even by individuals without any experience, and it comes with a comprehensive help section that includes not just articles, but also in-depth video tutorials. With a couple of mouse clicks you can see all existing records and you can set up new ones just as easily. This will allow you to use different services with different providers for a given domain address because you can have separate A (web server) and MX (e-mail server) records. You'll be able to set up AAAA, SRV, TXT as well as CNAME records to forward your domain name or use it for a specific non-website service including VOIP, game server host, and so forth. If you wish, you may even set up private name servers for any one of the domains registered through our company free of charge.
