Every domain name which is registered and hosted has quite a lot of DNS records - some of them are created automatically when you host a domain, others can be set up manually if required. As an illustration, the A record of a domain name is its IP address i.e. this record shows where the site is located; the MX records show where the e-mails are managed, while with an SRV record you can use a domain address for unconventional purposes, such as a Voice-over-IP service. To be able to set up and modify particular records allows you to have different services with different providers if, for example, your current host provides good web hosting, but has troubles with the email service, or you simply prefer to get a specific service from a certain company. Although you will be able to set up and edit these records freely and with no limits as you own a given domain address, a lot of companies charge extra to give you this option.

Full DNS Management in Web Hosting

The user-friendly Hepsia hosting CP, that comes with each and every Linux web hosting we offer, will provide you with 100 % access to all domain names that are hosted inside the account. With just a few mouse clicks you are going to be able to see the DNS records for every domain name that you host or subdomain which you create. You could also set up or modify any type of record you want, based on what you would like to do - A, AAAA, MX, TXT, SRV, CNAME, and so forth. This will enable you to define an email server, point a domain name 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 any domain name you have bought through our company and use them instead of our default ones not just for this domain name, but also for any other domain that will be hosted inside the same account. The full DNS management service is offered free of charge.
