Every single domain that is registered and hosted has quite a lot of DNS records - some of them are set up automatically when you host a domain, others can be created by hand if necessary. For instance, the A record of a domain address is its IP address i.e. this record shows where the website is located; the MX records reveal where the e-mails are managed, while with an SRV record you can use a domain for unconventional purposes, such as a Voice-over-IP service. Being able to create and modify particular records enables you to have different services with different companies if, for example, your present host provides dependable web hosting, but has difficulties with the email service, or you simply prefer to get a certain service from a certain company. Though you must be able to set up and modify these records freely and with no restrictions as you own a given domain, a lot of companies charge extra to give you this option.

Full DNS Management in Cloud Web Hosting

The user-friendly Hepsia hosting Control Panel, that comes with each and every Linux cloud web hosting service we offer, gives you 100 % access to all domain addresses that are hosted in the account. With just several mouse clicks you'll be able to see the DNS records for each and every domain which you host or subdomain that you create. You could also create or edit any sort of record you want, based on what you wish to do - A, AAAA, MX, TXT, SRV, CNAME, etc. This will allow you to define an e-mail server, point a domain name to a VOIP or online game server provided by another company, set up forwarding, etc. You may also register private name servers for every Internet domain that you have acquired through our company and use them instead of our standard ones not just for this domain, but also for any other domain which will be hosted within the same account. The full DNS management service is provided absolutely free of charge.
