Having full control of your domain names is something rather necessary and being able to access and edit the DNS records for every one of them is among the things you have to look for when you search for a registration or a cloud hosting provider. You might have heard about the so-called “name servers” that show where a domain is hosted, but below them there's a whole set of records, for example the A record, which is the IP address of the server hosting the website, and the MX records, which show the server that manages the emails for a specific domain. These records are used if you want to have your web site with one company and the emails with another, as an illustration. You can also use a domain address for a non-website service or direct the traffic to it using special records. Some companies ask for an additional fee to provide access to edit certain DNS records besides the name servers.
Full DNS Management in Cloud Hosting
The user-friendly Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with every single Linux cloud package we offer, gives you 100 % access to all domain addresses which are hosted in the account. With only a couple of clicks you'll be able to see the DNS records for each and every domain name that you host or subdomain which you set up. You may also create or edit any type of record that you like, based upon what you would like to do - A, AAAA, MX, TXT, SRV, CNAME, etc. This will allow you to define an e-mail server, point a domain to a VOIP or online game server provided by another company, set up forwarding, and so on. You can also register private name servers for each domain name that you have obtained through our company and use them instead of our default ones not only for this domain, but also for any other domain which will be hosted within the same account. The full DNS management service is offered free of charge.
Full DNS Management in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you get a semi-dedicated server through us, we will provide you with total control over all DNS records of every domain or subdomain inside your hosting account. The DNS Records tool of our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel is simple and intuitive enough to be used even by individuals without experience, plus it offers an in-depth help section that includes not only articles, but also thorough video tutorials. With a few clicks you can see all existing records and you could set up new ones just as easily. This will permit you to use different services with separate companies for a given domain name since you can have separate A (web server) and MX (mail server) records. Additionally, you'll be able to set up AAAA, SRV, TXT or CNAME records to forward your domain address or use it for a specific non-website service like VOIP, online game server host, and so on. If you wish, you may even create private name servers for any one of the domain names registered through our company at no extra cost.
