Any active domain name which is added in a hosting account features a variety of records which allow it to function properly. In the standard case, the name servers (NS records) show the location where the 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 like A (IP address of the website/server), MX (e mail server), SRV (employing a domain for non-website purposes on a specific port number such as Voice-over-IP), and so on. With access to these records and by being in a position to modify them, you could have your website with company A and your emails with company B, for instance. This gives you more flexibility as you can pick the best provider for every single one of these services and you don't need to stick to a single company. After you choose a hosting company, you have to make certain that you can access all DNS records freely since some companies have an additional fee for this feature.
Full DNS Management in Shared Hosting
With every shared hosting package we offer you can set up, remove or change any DNS record for any Internet domain or subdomain hosted inside your account easily. The Hepsia Control Panel which we provide with the shared accounts comes with a simple and intuitive tool which will allow you to see all current records and create new ones with several mouse clicks. You will be able to set up A, MX, CNAME, TXT, SRV and AAAA records, that will give you complete control over your domain addresses plus the possibility to choose the company that will provide you with a given service. As an example, if your site is on our sophisticated cloud platform, it will need a couple of clicks to direct your emails to be managed by a different provider. Unlike other registrar and hosting companies, we don't charge an extra fee to provide you the DNS management service.
Full DNS Management in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You're going to have total control of the DNS records of your domain names and subdomains if you buy one of our semi-dedicated server plans. The accounts are managed through our custom Hepsia Control Panel and one of its features is a sophisticated, albeit very easy to use section where you can see, set up or modify any type of record - A, MX, CNAME, NS, AAAA, TXT or SRV. There isn't any charge for that and you'll have total freedom with regard to managing your domain addresses and selecting the best service for them. For instance, with just a couple of mouse clicks you can set up each of the domain names in your account to have its site handled by one provider and its e-mails by another, you can also use a domain name as a host name for a VOIP server, which runs on an independent machine. You may also create and use private name servers so as to give your domains more credibility in case that somebody checks them.
