Every single domain name that's registered and hosted has a lot of DNS records - some of them are set up automatically when you host a domain, others can be set up by hand if required. As an example, the A record of a domain name is its IP address i.e. this record shows where the site is situated; the MX records show where the e-mails are stored, while using an SRV record you can use a domain for unconventional purposes, like a Voice-over-IP service. Being able to set up and modify particular records enables you to have different services with different companies if, for instance, your present host provides good web hosting, but has difficulties with the email service, or you simply prefer to get a particular service from a particular company. Though you will be able to create and modify these records freely and with no restrictions as you own a given domain name, some companies charge extra to give you this option.

Full DNS Management in Web Hosting

The user-friendly Hepsia hosting Control Panel, that comes with each web hosting plan we offer, will provide you with full access to all domain names which are hosted within the account. With only a couple of mouse clicks you will be able to see the DNS records for each and every domain name you host or subdomain that you create. You can also create or modify any kind of record that you would like, based on what you need to do - A, AAAA, MX, TXT, SRV, CNAME, and so on. This will allow you to define an email server, direct a domain to a VOIP or online game server provided by another company, set up forwarding, etc. You may even register private name servers for each domain you have obtained through our company and use them instead of our default ones not just for this domain, but also for any other domain that will be hosted in the same account. The whole DNS management service is provided free of charge.
