Any active domain name that's added in a hosting account features a number of records which allow it to work properly. In the common case, the name servers (NS records) show where the domain name is hosted and they are set on the side of the registrar company, but on the lower level there are particular records set through the hosting company such as A (IP address of the website/server), MX (e mail server), SRV (employing a domain address for non-website purposes on a certain port number like Voice-over-IP), etc. Having access to these records and by having the ability to modify them, you may have your web site with company A and your e-mail messages with company B, for example. This offers you more independence since you can choose the best provider for each of these services and you don't have to stick with one company. Whenever you choose a hosting company, you have to make certain that you can access all DNS records freely since some companies have an extra fee for this feature.
Full DNS Management in Cloud Hosting
The user-friendly Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with every single Linux cloud hosting package that we offer, offers you complete access to all domain addresses that are hosted in the account. With only several clicks you'll be able to see the DNS records for every domain that you host or subdomain that you create. You could also create or modify any kind of record that you'd like, depending on what you would like to do - A, AAAA, MX, TXT, SRV, CNAME, and so on. This will allow you to define an e-mail server, direct a domain address to a VOIP or online game server provided by another company, create forwarding, etc. You can even register private name servers for every domain that you've purchased through our company and use them instead of our standard ones not only for this domain, but also for any other domain which will be hosted in the same account. The whole DNS administration service is provided free of charge.
