Any active domain which is added in a hosting account includes a variety of records that permit it to perform properly. In the general case, the name servers (NS records) show 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 created through the hosting company like A (IP address of the website/server), MX (e-mail server), SRV (using a domain for non-website purposes on a specific port number like Voice-over-IP), and so on. Having access to these records and by having the ability to edit them, you may have your website with company A and your e-mail messages with company B, for instance. This offers you more independence because you can choose the best provider for each of these services and you don't need to stick to a single company. After you pick a hosting company, you have to make sure that you have access to all DNS records freely because some companies have an extra fee for this function.
Full DNS Management in Shared Web Hosting
The user-friendly Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each Linux shared web hosting we offer, gives you full access to all domain names that are hosted in the account. With simply a few clicks you will be able to see the DNS records for each and every domain name that you host or subdomain which you set up. You could also set up or modify any type of record you want, based on what you wish to do - A, AAAA, MX, TXT, SRV, CNAME, etc. This will enable you to define an e-mail server, direct a domain to a VOIP or online game server provided by another company, create forwarding, etc. You can also register private name servers for every Internet domain that you have acquired through our company and use them instead of our standard ones not just for this domain name, but also for any other domain which will be hosted in the same account. The whole DNS management service is provided free of charge.
