Any active domain that is added in a hosting account includes a number of records that enable it to perform properly. In the common case, the name servers (NS records) show 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 created through the hosting company like A (IP address of the website/server), MX (e-mail server), SRV (using a domain for non-website purposes on a specific port number like Voice-over-IP), and so on. With access to these records and by being in a position to edit them, you could have your website with company A and your e-mail messages with company B, for instance. This gives you more flexibility as you can pick the best provider for each of these services and you do not have to stick to one company. After you choose a hosting company, you have to make certain that you have access to all DNS records freely because some providers have an additional fee for this feature.
Full DNS Management in Hosting
With each and every Linux hosting that we offer you are able to set up, erase or change any DNS record for any domain address or subdomain hosted within your account effortlessly. The Hepsia Control Panel which we offer with the shared accounts includes a simple and easy-to-use tool which will allow you to see all current records and create new ones with simply a few mouse clicks. You will be able to set up A, MX, CNAME, TXT, SRV and AAAA records, which will offer you full control over your domains plus the opportunity to pick the company which will provide you with a given service. As an illustration, if your website is on our advanced cloud platform, it will take a couple of mouse clicks to point your e-mails to be managed by a different provider. In contrast to other registrar and hosting companies, we don't charge an extra fee to offer you the DNS management service.
