Every domain which is registered and hosted has lots of DNS records - some of them are set up automatically when you host a domain, others can be created by hand if needed. 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 show where the emails are stored, while with 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 certain records enables you to have different services with different companies if, for example, your current host provides good web hosting, but has troubles with the email service, or you simply prefer to get a specific service from a particular company. While you will be able to set up and edit these records freely and with no limitations as you own a given domain, some companies charge extra to give you this option.

You will have full control of the DNS records of your domain names and subdomains with any one of our hosting service. Using the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to access an easy-to-use tool where you can find all present records or create new ones with no more than a few mouse clicks. Aside from the default A and MX records, you can set up CNAME, TXT, SRV, and you may also set up private name servers for any domain name that is registered with us. The custom records will offer you a lot of overall flexibility and will allow you to do things such as hosting a subdomain on our servers while the main domain is hosted elsewhere or or vice versa, using a third-party e mail service, etc. We're never going to ask for any fees from you to be able to manage the DNS records of your domain addresses and the service comes by default with all shared plans.

Full DNS Management in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you purchase a semi-dedicated server through our company, we will provide you with full control over all DNS records of every domain address or subdomain inside your web hosting account. The DNS Records tool of our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel is simple and intuitive enough to be used even by individuals without any experience, plus it comes with an extensive help section that features not just articles, but also thorough video tutorials. With several mouse clicks you can see all current records and you can create new ones just as easily. This will permit you to use different services with separate companies for a given domain name because you can have separate A (web server) and MX (e-mail server) records. You'll be able to set up AAAA, SRV, TXT or CNAME records to forward your domain name or use it for a certain non-website service including VOIP, online game server host, and so on. If you would like, you may also create private name servers for any of the domain names registered through our company free of charge.
