Any active domain which is added in a hosting account features a number of records which allow it to work properly. In the typical case, the name servers (NS records) show where the domain is hosted and they're set on the side of the registrar company, but on the lower level there are certain 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 such as Voice-over-IP), etc. Having access to these records and by having the capacity to modify them, you could have your site with company A and your e-mail messages with company B, for example. This offers you more freedom because you can choose the best provider for every one of these services and you don't need to stick with one company. After you select a hosting company, you have to make sure that you have access to all DNS records freely as some providers have an extra fee for this function.
Full DNS Management in Cloud Web Hosting
The user-friendly Hepsia hosting Control Panel, that comes with each Linux cloud web hosting we offer, offers you full access to all domain addresses that are hosted in the account. With only a few clicks you're going to be able to see the DNS records for each and every domain you host or subdomain that you set up. You may also create or modify any sort of record that you'd like, based on what you would like to do - A, AAAA, MX, TXT, SRV, CNAME, etc. This will permit you to define a mail server, direct a domain address to a VOIP or online game server provided by another company, create forwarding, and so on. You may also register private name servers for every domain name you have obtained through us and use them instead of our default ones not just for this domain name, but also for any other domain that'll be hosted in the same account. The complete DNS management service is offered totally free of charge.
