Any active domain name that's added in a hosting account has a variety of records that allow it to function properly. In the typical case, the name servers (NS records) show the location where the Internet domain is hosted and they're set on the side of the registrar company, but on the lower level there are certain records set through the hosting company like A (IP address of the website/server), MX (e mail server), SRV (employing a domain address for non-website purposes on a certain port number like Voice-over-IP), etc. Having access to these records and by being in a position to edit them, you can have your website with company A and your e-mails with company B, for illustration. This offers you more independence since you can pick the best provider for each of these services and you don't need to stick with a single company. As soon as you pick a hosting company, you have to make sure that you can access all DNS records freely as some companies have an additional fee for this function.
Full DNS Management in Website Hosting
The user-friendly Hepsia hosting CP, that comes with every single website hosting plan that we offer, gives you full access to all domain names which are hosted in the account. With only a few clicks you'll be able to see the DNS records for each domain name that you host or subdomain which you create. You may also create or modify any kind of record that you'd like, depending on what you wish to do - A, AAAA, MX, TXT, SRV, CNAME, and so forth. This will enable you to define an e-mail server, direct a domain address to a VOIP or online game server provided by another company, create forwarding, and so on. You may also register private name servers for every domain name that you have purchased through us and use them instead of our default ones not only for this domain name, but also for any other domain that will be hosted inside the same account. The whole DNS administration service is offered totally free of charge.
Full DNS Management in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will have complete control of the DNS records of your domain addresses and subdomains if you get any of our semi-dedicated server plans. The accounts are maintained through our custom made Hepsia CP and one of its features is an advanced, though super easy to use section where you could see, set up or modify any sort of record - A, MX, CNAME, NS, AAAA, TXT or SRV. There's no charge for that and you will have absolute freedom with regard to managing your domain addresses and picking the best service for them. For instance, with simply a couple of mouse clicks you can set up each of the domains inside your account to have its site handled by one company and its e-mails by another, or you can use a domain as a host name for a VOIP server, which runs on a different machine. You could also create and use private name servers in order to give your domains more credibility in case somebody checks them.
