Any active domain name which is added in a hosting account has a number of records which allow it to function properly. In the standard 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 specific records created through the hosting company like A (IP address of the website/server), MX (e mail server), SRV (employing a domain name for non-website purposes on a particular port number like Voice-over-IP), and so on. Having access to these records and by having the capacity to modify them, you may have your site with company A and your emails with company B, for example. This offers you more freedom since you can pick the best provider for every one of these services and you do not have to stick with a single company. After you select a hosting company, you have to make sure that you can access all DNS records freely as some providers have an additional fee for this function.
Full DNS Management in Cloud Hosting
The user-friendly Hepsia hosting CP, that comes with every Linux cloud hosting package we offer, offers you 100 % access to all domains which are hosted in the account. With simply several clicks you'll be able to see the DNS records for every domain that you host or subdomain which you set up. You may also create or edit any kind of record that you would like, based upon what you would like to do - A, AAAA, MX, TXT, SRV, CNAME, etc. This will allow you to define an email server, direct a domain to a VOIP or online game server provided by another company, set up forwarding, and so forth. You may also register private name servers for each domain name you have purchased through us and use them instead of our default ones not just for this domain, but also for any other domain that'll be hosted within the same account. The full DNS administration service is offered free of charge.
