Each domain that's registered and hosted has a great deal of DNS records - some of them are set up automatically when you host a domain, others can be set up manually if needed. As an illustration, the A record of a domain address is its IP address i.e. this record reveals where the site is situated; the MX records reveal where the emails are stored, while with an SRV record you can use a domain address for unconventional purposes, such as a Voice-over-IP service. The ability to set up and modify particular records enables you to have different services with different companies if, for example, your present host provides dependable web hosting, but has issues with the e-mail service, or you simply prefer to get a specific service from a certain company. Even though you should be able to create and modify these records freely and without any restrictions as you own a given domain address, some companies charge extra to give you this option.

Full DNS Management in Cloud Hosting

The user-friendly Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each cloud hosting service that we offer, will provide you with 100 % access to all domain names which are hosted within the account. With just several mouse clicks you are going to be able to see the DNS records for every domain you host or subdomain which you set up. You can also create or edit any kind of record that you would like, depending on what you would like to do - A, AAAA, MX, TXT, SRV, CNAME, etc. This will allow you to define an email server, point a domain name to a VOIP or online game server provided by another company, create forwarding, and so forth. You may even register private name servers for any Internet domain you have acquired through our company and use them instead of our standard ones not just for this domain, but also for any other domain that will be hosted inside the same account. The full DNS management service is offered totally free of charge.

Full DNS Management in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you acquire a semi-dedicated server from our company, we're going to provide you with full control over all DNS records of every domain or subdomain in your hosting account. The DNS Records tool of our in-house built Hepsia CP is simple and intuitive enough to be used even by individuals without experience, plus it provides a comprehensive help section which includes not just articles, but also in-depth video tutorials. With several mouse clicks you can see all current records and you could set up new ones just as easily. This will enable you to use different services with separate providers for a given domain name since you can have separate A (web server) and MX (mail server) records. You'll also be able to set up AAAA, SRV, TXT or CNAME records to forward your domain or use it for a certain non-website service such as VOIP, game server host, etc. If you wish, you can even create private name servers for any one of the domains registered through our company free of charge.
