Each domain that is 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 manually if necessary. As an illustration, the A record of a domain name is its IP address i.e. this record shows where the website is situated; the MX records show where the emails are handled, while through an SRV record you can use a domain address for unconventional purposes, like a Voice-over-IP service. The ability to set up and modify particular records allows you to have different services with different providers if, for illustration, 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 specific company. Even though you can create and edit these records freely and with no limitations as you own a given domain name, lots of companies charge extra to give you this option.
Full DNS Management in Shared Hosting
The user-friendly Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with every single shared hosting we offer, offers you 100 % access to all domains that are hosted in the account. With only several clicks you'll be able to see the DNS records of any domain name that you host or subdomain which you set up. You may also set up or edit any kind of record that you would like, based upon what you need to do - A, AAAA, MX, TXT, SRV, CNAME, etc. This will permit you to define a mail server, direct a domain name to a VOIP or online game server provided by another company, create forwarding, etc. You can also register private name servers for each domain you have acquired through our company and use them instead of our standard ones not just for this domain name, but also for any other domain that'll be hosted inside the same account. The full DNS management service is offered free of charge.
