Any active domain that is added in a hosting account includes a number of records that enable it to function properly. In the typical case, the name servers (NS records) show the location where the Internet domain is hosted and they're set on the side of the registrar company, but on the lower level there are particular records created through the hosting company like A (IP address of the website/server), MX (e mail server), SRV (employing a domain for non-website purposes on a specific port number such as Voice-over-IP), and many others. With access to these records and by having the ability to modify them, you could have your site with company A and your emails with company B, for instance. This gives you more overall flexibility because you can select the best provider for every one of these services and you do not have to stick to one company. Whenever you choose a hosting company, you have to make sure that you can access all DNS records freely as some providers have an extra fee for this function.
Full DNS Management in Cloud Hosting
The user-friendly Hepsia hosting CP, that comes with every single Linux cloud hosting we offer, gives you total access to all domain names that are hosted in the account. With simply a few mouse clicks you are going to be able to see the DNS records of any domain that you host or subdomain that you create. You may also set up or modify any kind of record that you would like, based on what you need to do - A, AAAA, MX, TXT, SRV, CNAME, and so forth. This will permit you to define an email server, direct a domain to a VOIP or online game server provided by another company, create forwarding, and so forth. You may also register private name servers for each Internet domain you have purchased through our company and use them instead of our standard ones not only for this domain name, but also for any other domain that will be hosted in the same account. The whole DNS administration service is offered free of charge.
