Every single domain that's registered and hosted has quite a lot of DNS records - some of them are created automatically when you host a domain, others can be created by hand if needed. For example, the A record of a domain name is its IP address i.e. this record shows where the website is located; the MX records show where the e-mails are managed, while with an SRV record you can use a domain name for unconventional purposes, like a Voice-over-IP service. To be able to set up and modify certain records enables you to have different services with different providers if, for instance, your present host provides dependable web hosting, but has issues with the e-mail service, or you simply prefer to get a certain service from a certain company. Although you will be able to set up and edit 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 Web Hosting

The user-friendly Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with each and every Linux web hosting that we offer, gives you 100 % access to all domain names which are hosted within the account. With just several mouse clicks you are going to be able to see the DNS records for each domain name which you host or subdomain that you set up. You may also create or edit any sort of record that you like, based on what you wish to do - A, AAAA, MX, TXT, SRV, CNAME, and so on. This will allow you to define a mail server, direct a domain address to a VOIP or online game server provided by another company, create forwarding, and so on. You can also register private name servers for any domain name that you've purchased through our company and use them instead of our standard ones not just for this domain, but also for any other domain that'll be hosted in the same account. The full DNS administration service is provided free of charge.

You'll be able to create AAAA, SRV, TXT or CNAME records to forward your domain address or use it for a certain non-website service such as VOIP, online game server host, etc. If you wish, you may even create private name servers for each of the domains registered through our company totally free.
