Each domain name which is registered and hosted has a lot of DNS records - some of them are set up automatically when you host a domain, others can be set up manually if required. As an example, the A record of a domain address is its IP address i.e. this record reveals where the website is located; the MX records reveal where the emails are stored, while using an SRV record you can use a domain for unconventional purposes, including a Voice-over-IP service. To be able to set up and modify certain records allows you to have different services with different companies if, for instance, your current host provides dependable web hosting, but has issues with the e-mail service, or you simply prefer to get a particular service from a specific company. Even though you should be able to set up and modify these records freely and without any limits as you own a given domain name, a lot of companies charge extra to give you this option.
Full DNS Management in Shared Web Hosting
The user-friendly Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each and every shared web hosting that we offer, will provide you with complete access to all domain names which are hosted in the account. With only a few mouse clicks you'll be able to see the DNS records for each and every domain name that you host or subdomain that you set up. You may also set up or edit any type of record that you'd like, based upon what you would like to do - A, AAAA, MX, TXT, SRV, CNAME, and so forth. This will permit you to define a mail server, direct a domain name to a VOIP or online game server provided by another company, set up forwarding, etc. You may also register private name servers for every Internet domain you have bought through our company and use them instead of our standard ones not only for this domain, but also for any other domain that'll be hosted in the same account. The whole DNS administration service is offered absolutely free of charge.
