Every single domain name which is 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 created by hand if needed. For example, the A record of a domain is its IP address i.e. this record shows where the website is situated; the MX records reveal where the emails are handled, while through an SRV record you can use a domain name for unconventional purposes, such as a Voice-over-IP service. Being able to create and modify particular records allows you to have different services with different companies if, for example, your present host provides good web hosting, but has problems with the email service, or you simply prefer to get a specific service from a particular company. Even though you will be able to set up and modify these records freely and with no limits as you own a given domain address, many companies charge extra to give you this option.
Full DNS Management in Website Hosting
With each and every Linux website hosting package which we offer you can create, remove or change any DNS record for any domain or subdomain hosted inside your account in no time. The Hepsia Control Panel that we provide with the shared accounts includes a simple and user-friendly tool that will permit you to see all current records and create new ones with simply several mouse clicks. You will be able to create A, MX, CNAME, TXT, SRV or AAAA records, that will provide you with full control over your domains along with the possibility to choose the company which will provide you with a given service. As an illustration, if your site is on our sophisticated cloud platform, it will require a couple of mouse clicks to direct your e-mails 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.
