Every single domain which is registered and hosted has a great deal of DNS records - some of them are created automatically when you host a domain, others can be set up by hand if required. As an illustration, the A record of a domain is its IP address i.e. this record shows where the website is situated; the MX records reveal where the e-mails are managed, while through an SRV record you can use a domain name for unconventional purposes, including a Voice-over-IP service. Being able to set up and modify specific records permits you to have different services with different companies if, for instance, your present host provides good web hosting, but has difficulties with the e-mail service, or you simply prefer to get a certain service from a specific company. Though you can create and edit these records freely and with no limitations as you own a given domain, some companies charge extra to give you this option.
Full DNS Management in Shared Website Hosting
The user-friendly Hepsia hosting Control Panel, that comes with each and every shared website hosting that we offer, gives you total access to all domains that are hosted within the account. With only a couple of mouse clicks you're going to be able to see the DNS records for every domain name you host or subdomain that you create. You may also create or modify any sort of record that you would like, depending on 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 on. You can also register private name servers for every Internet domain that you have purchased through our company and use them instead of our standard ones not just for this domain name, but also for any other domain that will be hosted in the same account. The full DNS administration service is offered absolutely free of charge.
