Having 100 % control over your domains is something rather important and being able to access and edit the DNS records for each of them is one of the things you should look for when you search for a registration or a hosting provider. You may have heard about the so-called “name servers” that show where a domain address is hosted, but below them there's a whole list of records, such as the A record, which is the IP address of the server hosting the site, and the MX records, which show the server that manages the emails for a particular domain address. These records are used if you wish to have your site with one company and the emails with another, for instance. Additionally you can use a domain address for a non-website service or forward the traffic to it by using special records. A lot of companies ask for an additional fee to grant access to edit specific DNS records besides the name servers.
Full DNS Management in Hosting
The user-friendly Hepsia hosting Control Panel, that comes with every Linux hosting we offer, gives you total access to all domain names that are hosted within the account. With only several mouse clicks you're going to be able to see the DNS records of any domain name that you host or subdomain which you create. You can also set up or modify any type of record that you would like, depending on what you need to do - A, AAAA, MX, TXT, SRV, CNAME, and so forth. This will permit you to define an email server, direct a domain name to a VOIP or online game server provided by another company, set up forwarding, and so on. You may even register private name servers for every domain that you've acquired through us and use them instead of our default ones not only for this domain name, but also for any other domain that will be hosted in the same account. The complete DNS management service is provided totally free of charge.
