Any active domain which is added in a hosting account features a number of records that enable it to function properly. In the standard 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 specific records created through the hosting company such as A (IP address of the website/server), MX (e-mail server), SRV (using a domain address for non-website purposes on a particular port number like Voice-over-IP), and many others. Having access to these records and by being able to modify them, you can have your website with company A and your e-mails with company B, for illustration. This gives you more freedom since you can choose the best provider for every one of these services and you don't have to stick with a single company. When you choose a hosting company, you have to make sure that you can access all DNS records freely because some providers have an additional fee for this function.
Full DNS Management in Shared Hosting
If you purchase a shared hosting from us, you'll have total DNS management for every domain name through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With just a couple of mouse clicks you'll be able to see all current records for a specific Internet domain or subdomain, or you can set up any type of new record - A, AAAA, MX, CNAME, SRV, TXT and so on. These records can be used for different purposes - identifying the web or mail server, using a Internet domain for a VOIP host name, etc. You will also have the capacity to create private name servers for any domain registered through our company. The DNS Records section of the Control Panel is user-friendly and with an extensive Help section in which you can find more details about the function of the different records and how to create them. The DNS management services come as a part of the plans and at no extra charge.
