Any active domain name that's added in a hosting account has a number of records which allow it to perform properly. In the standard 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 such as A (IP address of the website/server), MX (email server), SRV (using a domain address for non-website purposes on a certain port number like Voice-over-IP), and many others. With access to these records and by having the capacity to modify them, you could have your site with company A and your emails with company B, for instance. This gives you more freedom as you can pick the best provider for every single one of these services and you don't need to stick with only one company. After you choose 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 CP, that comes with each and every shared web hosting plan that we offer, gives you complete access to all domain addresses which are hosted in the account. With just a few clicks you're going to be able to see the DNS records for every domain name that you host or subdomain that you set up. You may also create or edit any sort of record that you would like, based upon what you wish to do - A, AAAA, MX, TXT, SRV, CNAME, and so forth. This will allow you to define a mail server, point a domain to a VOIP or online game server provided by another company, set up forwarding, and so forth. You can also register private name servers for every domain name that you have obtained through us and use them instead of our default ones not just for this domain, but also for any other domain which will be hosted in the same account. The whole DNS administration service is provided totally free of charge.
Full DNS Management in Semi-dedicated Servers
You're going to have complete control of the DNS records of your domain addresses and subdomains if you order any of our semi-dedicated server plans. The accounts are handled using our custom made Hepsia CP and one of its features is a sophisticated, even though super easy to use section where you can see, create or modify any sort of record - A, MX, CNAME, NS, AAAA, TXT and SRV. There isn't any fee for that and you'll have absolute freedom with regards to managing your domain names and selecting the best service for them. For instance, with simply a couple of mouse clicks you can set up each of the domains in your account to have its web site handled by one provider 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 set up and use private name servers so as to give your domains more credibility in case that somebody checks them.
