Any active domain that is added in a hosting account features a variety of records which allow it to work properly. In the typical case, the name servers (NS records) show the location where the domain is hosted and they are 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 (email server), SRV (employing an Internet domain for non-website purposes on a specific port number like Voice-over-IP), and many others. With access to these records and by having the ability to edit them, you can have your site with company A and your e-mails with company B, for example. This offers you more independence as you can pick the best provider for every single one of these services and you don't need to stick with only one company. As soon as you pick a hosting company, you have to make sure that you have access to all DNS records freely as some providers have an additional fee for this function.

Full DNS Management in Shared Hosting

The user-friendly Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with each and every shared hosting we offer, offers you complete access to all domain addresses which are hosted inside the account. With just a couple of mouse clicks you'll be able to see the DNS records for each and every domain which you host or subdomain that you create. You can also set up or modify any sort of record you want, depending on what you need to do - A, AAAA, MX, TXT, SRV, CNAME, and so forth. This will permit you to define an e-mail server, direct a domain name to a VOIP or online game server provided by another company, set up forwarding, and so on. You may also register private name servers for any domain name you have bought through us and use them instead of our default ones not just for this domain, but also for any other domain which will be hosted in the same account. The whole DNS management service is offered free of charge.
