Any active domain that is added in a hosting account has a number of records that allow it to function properly. In the standard 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 particular records set through the hosting company like A (IP address of the website/server), MX (e mail server), SRV (using a domain for non-website purposes on a certain port number like Voice-over-IP), etc. Having access to these records and by being in a position to modify them, you could have your website with company A and your e-mail messages with company B, for illustration. This gives you more overall flexibility since you can choose the best provider for every one of these services and you don't need to stick to only one company. As soon as you select a hosting company, you have to make certain that you have access to all DNS records freely since some providers have an extra fee for this function.

Full DNS Management in Shared Website Hosting

The user-friendly Hepsia hosting CP, that comes with every single shared website hosting we offer, provides you with total access to all domains that are hosted in the account. With just a couple of mouse clicks you will be able to see the DNS records for each and every domain you host or subdomain that you set up. You can also set up or edit any kind of record that you'd like, based upon what you would like to do - A, AAAA, MX, TXT, SRV, CNAME, etc. This will enable you to define an email server, point 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 each Internet domain that you have obtained 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 administration service is offered free of charge.
