Every single domain which 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. As an example, the A record of a domain name is its IP address i.e. this record reveals where the web site is situated; the MX records reveal where the emails are handled, while through an SRV record you can use a domain for unconventional purposes, like a Voice-over-IP service. To be able to set up and modify certain records permits you to have different services with different companies if, for example, your current host provides stable web hosting, but has issues with the email service, or you simply prefer to get a particular service from a particular company. Even though you should be able to set up and edit these records freely and with no limitations as you own a given domain, a lot of companies charge extra to give you this option.
Full DNS Management in Shared Website Hosting
With each and every Linux shared website hosting service that we offer you can set up, delete or change any DNS record for any domain or subdomain hosted within your account with ease. The Hepsia Control Panel which we offer with the shared accounts includes a simple and intuitive tool that will allow you to see all existing records and create new ones with only a couple of mouse clicks. You will be able to create A, MX, CNAME, TXT, SRV or AAAA records, which will provide you with full control over your domain addresses as well as the possibility to select the company that will provide you with a given service. For instance, if your site is on our leading-edge cloud platform, it will take a couple of mouse clicks to point your e-mail to be managed by a different provider. Different from other registrar and hosting companies, we do not charge an extra fee to provide you the DNS management service.
Full DNS Management in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you buy a semi-dedicated server from us, we will provide you with full control over all DNS records of every domain or subdomain within your web 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 experience, and it comes with an in-depth help section that includes not just articles, but also thorough video tutorials. With several mouse clicks you can see all present records and you can set up new ones just as easily. This will enable you to use different services with different providers for a given domain because you can have separate A (web server) and MX (mail server) records. You will also be able to create AAAA, SRV, TXT or CNAME records to forward your domain name or use it for a specific non-website service including VOIP, online game server host, and many others. If you wish, you may even set up private name servers for any of the domain names registered through our company at no extra cost.
