Any active domain name that is added in a hosting account features a number of records which allow it to function properly. In the typical case, the name servers (NS records) show the location where the domain name is hosted and they're 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 (using an Internet domain for non-website purposes on a certain port number such as Voice-over-IP), and many others. Having access to these records and by being able to modify them, you can have your website with company A and your emails with company B, for instance. This offers you more flexibility since you can pick the best provider for every one of these services and you don't need to stick to one company. As soon as you select a hosting company, you have to make sure that you have access to all DNS records freely since some companies have an additional fee for this function.
Full DNS Management in Shared Website Hosting
The user-friendly Hepsia hosting CP, that comes with each Linux shared website hosting we offer, will provide you with total access to all domain names which are hosted in the account. With only a few clicks you'll be able to see the DNS records for each and every domain name you host or subdomain that you create. You can also set up or edit any kind of record that you would like, based upon what you would like to do - A, AAAA, MX, TXT, SRV, CNAME, and so on. This will enable you to define a mail server, point a domain to a VOIP or online game server provided by another company, set up forwarding, etc. You can also register private name servers for every domain name that you have acquired through our company and use them instead of our default ones not just for this domain name, but also for any other domain that will be hosted within the same account. The complete DNS administration service is offered free of charge.
