Every domain that is registered and hosted has a great deal 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 reveals where the web site is located; the MX records show where the emails are managed, while through an SRV record you can use a domain address for unconventional purposes, like a Voice-over-IP service. The ability to set up and modify specific records enables you to have different services with different providers if, for illustration, your present host provides stable web hosting, but has difficulties with the email service, or you simply prefer to get a specific service from a particular company. While you must be able to create and edit these records freely and with no restrictions as you own a given domain address, some companies charge extra to give you this option.
Full DNS Management in Cloud Hosting
The user-friendly Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with every single cloud hosting that we offer, offers you 100 % access to all domain names that are hosted in the account. With simply several clicks you're going to be able to see the DNS records for each and every domain you host or subdomain which you create. You can also create or modify any kind of record you want, based upon what you wish to do - A, AAAA, MX, TXT, SRV, CNAME, etc. 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 even register private name servers for every Internet domain you have obtained through our company and use them instead of our default ones not only for this domain name, but also for any other domain which will be hosted within the same account. The complete DNS management service is provided totally free of charge.
Full DNS Management in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you acquire a semi-dedicated server through us, we'll provide you with complete control over all DNS records of every domain address or subdomain in 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 people without experience, and it comes with a comprehensive help section that includes not only articles, but also detailed video tutorials. With a few mouse clicks you can see all existing records and you could set up new ones just as easily. This will enable you to use different services with separate companies for a given domain as you can have separate A (web server) and MX (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 such as VOIP, online game server host, and so forth. If you would like, you may also set up private name servers for any one of the domain names registered through our company free of charge.
