Every domain name that's registered and hosted has lots of DNS records - some of them are created automatically when you host a domain, others can be set up manually if necessary. As an example, the A record of a domain is its IP address i.e. this record reveals where the web site is situated; the MX records reveal where the e-mails are handled, while through an SRV record you can use a domain for unconventional purposes, including a Voice-over-IP service. Being able to create and modify certain records enables you to have different services with different providers if, for instance, your present host provides good web hosting, but has difficulties with the email service, or you simply prefer to get a particular service from a particular company. While you will be able to set up and edit these records freely and without any limitations as you own a given domain address, a lot of companies charge extra to give you this option.
Full DNS Management in Cloud Hosting
The user-friendly Hepsia hosting Control Panel, that comes with every cloud plan that we offer, will provide you with complete access to all domain names that are hosted in the account. With only a few mouse clicks you will be able to see the DNS records for every domain that you host or subdomain that you create. You can also create or modify any sort of record that you would like, based on what you wish to do - A, AAAA, MX, TXT, SRV, CNAME, and so forth. This will allow you to define a mail server, direct a domain to a VOIP or online game server provided by another company, create forwarding, etc. You can even register private name servers for every domain name that you have obtained through us and use them instead of our standard ones not just for this domain, but also for any other domain which will be hosted within the same account. The complete DNS administration service is provided absolutely free of charge.
