Each domain that is registered and hosted has lots of DNS records - some of them are set up automatically when you host a domain, others can be set up manually if required. For instance, the A record of a domain is its IP address i.e. this record shows where the web site is located; the MX records show where the e-mails are managed, while using an SRV record you can use a domain name for unconventional purposes, including a Voice-over-IP service. To be able to create and modify certain records enables you to have different services with different companies if, for instance, your current host provides stable web hosting, but has troubles with the email service, or you simply prefer to get a particular service from a specific company. Although you will be able to create and modify these records freely and with no restrictions as you own a given domain, lots of companies charge extra to give you this option.
Full DNS Management in Cloud Web Hosting
The user-friendly Hepsia hosting Control Panel, that comes with every single cloud web hosting we offer, offers you full access to all domain addresses that are hosted in the account. With only a few clicks you will be able to see the DNS records for every domain name that you host or subdomain that you set up. You could also set up or edit any type of record you want, depending on what you need to do - A, AAAA, MX, TXT, SRV, CNAME, etc. This will permit you to define an email server, direct a domain to a VOIP or online game server provided by another company, create forwarding, and so forth. You can even register private name servers for every domain that you have acquired through us and use them instead of our default ones not just for this domain name, but also for any other domain which will be hosted within the same account. The whole DNS management service is provided free of charge.
Full DNS Management in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you get a semi-dedicated server through our company, we'll provide you with total control over all DNS records of every domain name or subdomain inside your 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 with no experience, plus it provides a comprehensive help section that includes not just articles, but also detailed video tutorials. With a few clicks you can see all present records and you can create new ones just as easily. This will allow you to use different services with different companies for a given domain name since you can have separate A (web server) and MX (email 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 certain non-website service such as VOIP, online game server host, and so on. If you would like, you may even set up private name servers for any of the domain addresses registered through our company totally free.
