Each domain that is registered and hosted has a great deal of DNS records - some of them are set up automatically when you host a domain, others can be created by hand if needed. As an example, the A record of a domain is its IP address i.e. this record reveals where the website is situated; the MX records show where the emails are stored, while with an SRV record you can use a domain for unconventional purposes, like a Voice-over-IP service. Being able to create and modify specific records permits you to have different services with different providers if, for example, your present host provides stable web hosting, but has problems with the email service, or you simply prefer to get a certain service from a particular company. Though you must be able to set up and modify these records freely and with no limitations as you own a given domain name, lots of companies charge extra to give you this option.
Full DNS Management in Website Hosting
The user-friendly Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with every single website hosting that we offer, will provide you with total access to all domains that are hosted within the account. With just a couple of clicks you are going to be able to see the DNS records for each and every domain that you host or subdomain which you create. You can also create or modify any type of record that you would like, based upon what you need to do - A, AAAA, MX, TXT, SRV, CNAME, and so on. 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 forth. You may also register private name servers for every domain name that you have acquired through our company and use them instead of our default ones not only for this domain name, but also for any other domain which will be hosted in the same account. The whole DNS administration service is provided absolutely free of charge.
