Every domain name that is registered and hosted has lots of DNS records - some of them are created automatically when you host a domain, others can be created by hand if needed. As an illustration, the A record of a domain name is its IP address i.e. this record reveals where the website is situated; the MX records reveal where the e-mails are handled, while using an SRV record you can use a domain name for unconventional purposes, for instance a Voice-over-IP service. To be able to set up and modify particular records permits you to have different services with different companies if, for example, your present host provides good web hosting, but has difficulties with the email service, or you simply prefer to get a certain service from a particular company. While you will be able to set up and modify these records freely and without any limitations as you own a given domain name, a lot of companies charge extra to give you this option.

Full DNS Management in Cloud Hosting

The user-friendly Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with every cloud package that we offer, provides you with full access to all domains which are hosted in the account. With simply a few clicks you will be able to see the DNS records for each domain name which you host or subdomain which you create. You can also create or edit any sort of record that you would like, based on what you need to do - A, AAAA, MX, TXT, SRV, CNAME, and so forth. 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, etc. You can also register private name servers for each domain you have obtained through us and use them instead of our default ones not only for this domain, but also for any other domain that'll be hosted in the same account. The whole DNS administration service is provided free of charge.

Full DNS Management in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you buy a semi-dedicated server from us, we will provide you with complete control over all DNS records of any domain name or subdomain inside your hosting account. The DNS Records tool of our in-house built Hepsia CP is simple and intuitive enough to be used even by people without any experience, and it offers a comprehensive help section that features not just articles, but also in-depth video tutorials. With several mouse clicks you can see all present records and you can create new ones just as easily. This will allow you to use different services with different companies for a given domain address since you can have separate A (web server) and MX (mail server) records. You will also be able to set up AAAA, SRV, TXT or CNAME records to forward your domain address or use it for a certain non-website service like VOIP, online game server host, and so forth. If you'd like, you may even set up private name servers for each of the domain addresses registered through our company at no extra cost.
