Any active domain that is added in a hosting account includes a number of records which allow it to perform 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 such as A (IP address of the website/server), MX (e mail server), SRV (employing a domain for non-website purposes on a particular port number like Voice-over-IP), and so on. By having access to these records and by being able to edit them, you may have your site with company A and your e-mail messages with company B, for illustration. This gives you more overall flexibility because you can select the best provider for each of these services and you do not have to stick to a single company. When you select a hosting company, you have to make sure that you can access all DNS records freely as some providers have an extra fee for this function.

Full DNS Management in Cloud Website Hosting

The user-friendly Hepsia hosting Control Panel, that comes with each Linux cloud website hosting we offer, provides you with full access to all domains that are hosted inside the account. With just a couple of clicks you're going to be able to see the DNS records of any domain name that you host or subdomain that you create. You can also set up or edit any sort of record that you like, based on what you wish to do - A, AAAA, MX, TXT, SRV, CNAME, and so on. This will enable you to define an email server, direct a domain to a VOIP or online game server provided by another company, set up forwarding, and so on. You can even register private name servers for every domain name that you have bought through our company and use them instead of our standard ones not only for this domain name, but also for any other domain which will be hosted within the same account. The full DNS management service is offered totally free of charge.
