Any active domain name that's 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 the location 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 set through the hosting company such as 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 such as Voice-over-IP), and many others. Having access to these records and by having the capacity to edit them, you may have your site with company A and your emails with company B, for example. This gives you more freedom as you can pick the best provider for each of these services and you do not 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 companies have an additional fee for this function.
Full DNS Management in Shared Hosting
The user-friendly Hepsia hosting Control Panel, that comes with every single Linux shared hosting package that we offer, will provide you with 100 % access to all domain names that are hosted inside the account. With only a couple of mouse clicks you will be able to see the DNS records for each and every domain name which you host or subdomain which you set up. You may also create or modify any sort of record that you like, based upon what you wish to do - A, AAAA, MX, TXT, SRV, CNAME, etc. This will permit you to define an e-mail server, point a domain address to a VOIP or online game server provided by another company, set up forwarding, etc. You may even register private name servers for every domain that you've bought through us and use them instead of our standard ones not only for this domain, but also for any other domain which will be hosted within the same account. The whole DNS management service is provided free of charge.
