Any active domain that is added in a hosting account includes a variety of records that enable it to work properly. In the general 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 such as A (IP address of the website/server), MX (e mail server), SRV (employing a domain address for non-website purposes on a specific port number like Voice-over-IP), and many others. Having access to these records and by having the ability to modify them, you can have your website with company A and your e-mail messages with company B, for instance. This gives you more flexibility as you can select the best provider for every single one of these services and you do not have to stick to only one company. After you choose a hosting company, you have to make certain that you have access to all DNS records freely as some companies have an extra fee for this feature.
Full DNS Management in Cloud Web Hosting
The user-friendly Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with every single Linux cloud web hosting that we offer, will provide you with total access to all domain names which are hosted within the account. With simply several clicks you're going to be able to see the DNS records for each domain which you host or subdomain which you create. You could also set up or modify any type of record that you like, based on what you wish to do - A, AAAA, MX, TXT, SRV, CNAME, etc. This will enable you to define an e-mail server, direct a domain address to a VOIP or online game server provided by another company, set up forwarding, and so on. You can also register private name servers for every domain name that you've bought through our company and use them instead of our default ones not only for this domain, but also for any other domain which will be hosted within the same account. The whole DNS management service is provided totally free of charge.
