Any active domain which is added in a hosting account includes a variety of records that enable it to function properly. In the general case, the name servers (NS records) show where the domain name is hosted and they are set on the side of the registrar company, but on the lower level there are particular records created through the hosting company like A (IP address of the website/server), MX (email server), SRV (using a domain address for non-website purposes on a specific port number like Voice-over-IP), and many others. By having access to these records and by having the capacity to edit them, you may have your site with company A and your emails with company B, for instance. This gives you more independence since you can select the best provider for every one of these services and you do not have to stick to a single company. When you select a hosting company, you have to make certain that you can access all DNS records freely since some companies have an additional fee for this function.
Full DNS Management in Shared Hosting
The user-friendly Hepsia hosting CP, that comes with each and every shared hosting that we offer, provides you with 100 % access to all domain addresses which are hosted within the account. With only a couple of mouse clicks you are going to be able to see the DNS records for each domain name which you host or subdomain that you create. You could also create or modify any sort of record you want, depending on what you would like to do - A, AAAA, MX, TXT, SRV, CNAME, etc. This will enable you to define a mail server, point a domain name to a VOIP or online game server provided by another company, create forwarding, etc. You may also register private name servers for each domain name that you've acquired through us and use them instead of our standard ones not only for this domain name, but also for any other domain that will be hosted in the same account. The complete DNS administration service is provided absolutely free of charge.
