Any active domain name that's added in a hosting account features a number of records that enable it to function properly. In the typical case, the name servers (NS records) show where the Internet domain is hosted and they are set on the side of the registrar company, but on the lower level there are certain 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 particular port number like Voice-over-IP), and so on. By having access to these records and by having the capacity to modify them, you could have your web site with company A and your e-mail messages with company B, for instance. This gives you more independence because you can pick the best provider for every single one of these services and you don't have to stick with only one company. Whenever you select a hosting company, you have to make sure that you have access to all DNS records freely since some providers have an extra fee for this function.

Full DNS Management in Semi-dedicated Servers

The DNS Records tool of our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel is simple and intuitive enough to be used even by individuals without experience, and it comes with an in-depth help section which includes not only articles, but also detailed video tutorials. With a few mouse clicks you can see all current records and you could create new ones just as easily. This will permit you to use different services with separate providers for a given domain name because you can have separate A (web server) and MX (mail server) records. You'll be able to create AAAA, SRV, TXT or CNAME records to forward your domain name or use it for a specific non-website service like VOIP, online game server host, and so forth. If you want, you may also set up private name servers for each of the domain names registered through our company totally free.
