Any active domain that's added in a hosting account has a number of records that allow it to work properly. In the general case, the name servers (NS records) show the location where the domain name is hosted and they're set on the side of the registrar company, but on the lower level there are particular records set through the hosting company such as A (IP address of the website/server), MX (email server), SRV (employing a domain address for non-website purposes on a certain port number like Voice-over-IP), etc. Having access to these records and by having the ability to modify them, you could have your website with company A and your emails with company B, for example. This offers you more freedom since you can pick the best provider for every one of these services and you do not have to stick to a single company. When you pick a hosting company, you have to make sure that you have access to all DNS records freely as some providers have an extra fee for this function.

Full DNS Management in Shared Hosting

The user-friendly Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each and every Linux shared hosting we offer, gives you full access to all domains that are hosted inside the account. With only a few mouse clicks you will be able to see the DNS records for every domain name which you host or subdomain which you create. You can also set up or edit any sort of record that you'd like, based upon what you would like to do - A, AAAA, MX, TXT, SRV, CNAME, etc. This will enable you to define an email server, point a domain to a VOIP or online game server provided by another company, create forwarding, and so on. You can also register private name servers for every domain that you have obtained through our company and use them instead of our standard ones not only for this domain, but also for any other domain that will be hosted in the same account. The whole DNS administration service is offered free of charge.
