Every single domain that's registered and hosted has a great deal of DNS records - some of them are created automatically when you host a domain, others can be created by hand if required. As an example, the A record of a domain name is its IP address i.e. this record shows where the website is located; the MX records reveal where the e-mails are handled, while using an SRV record you can use a domain address for unconventional purposes, for instance a Voice-over-IP service. Being able to set up and modify particular records enables you to have different services with different providers if, for example, your current host provides stable web hosting, but has problems with the e-mail service, or you simply prefer to get a particular service from a certain company. Even though you should be able to create and edit these records freely and with no limitations as you own a given domain, many companies charge extra to give you this option.
Full DNS Management in Website Hosting
The user-friendly Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with every website hosting we offer, will provide you with full access to all domains that are hosted inside the account. With simply a few clicks you'll be able to see the DNS records of any domain name you host or subdomain which you create. You may also set up or modify any sort of record that you like, based on what you need to do - A, AAAA, MX, TXT, SRV, CNAME, and so forth. This will permit 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 that you've bought through our company and use them instead of our standard ones not only for this domain, but also for any other domain which will be hosted inside the same account. The complete DNS management service is provided absolutely free of charge.
Full DNS Management in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server through our company, we're going to provide you with complete control over all DNS records of any domain or subdomain within your web hosting account. The DNS Records tool of our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel is simple and intuitive enough to be used even by individuals without experience, plus it provides an in-depth help section that features not only articles, but also in-depth video tutorials. With several mouse clicks you can see all present records and you can create new ones just as easily. This will enable you to use different services with separate providers for a given domain address because you can have separate A (web server) and MX (email server) records. You'll be able to create AAAA, SRV, TXT or CNAME records to forward your domain address or use it for a certain non-website service like VOIP, game server host, and many others. If you would like, you can even create private name servers for any one of the domain addresses registered through our company at no extra cost.
