Any active domain that is added in a hosting account includes a variety of records which allow it to perform properly. In the standard 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 specific records created through the hosting company like A (IP address of the website/server), MX (e mail server), SRV (employing a domain name for non-website purposes on a specific port number like Voice-over-IP), etc. Having access to these records and by being able to edit them, you may have your website with company A and your emails with company B, for instance. This gives you more flexibility as you can pick the best provider for each of these services and you don't have to stick with one company. After you pick a hosting company, you have to make sure that you can access all DNS records freely as some companies have an additional fee for this feature.
Full DNS Management in Hosting
The user-friendly Hepsia hosting CP, that comes with every single hosting that we offer, will provide you with full access to all domains which are hosted inside the account. With only a few mouse clicks you're going to be able to see the DNS records for every domain name which you host or subdomain that you create. You can also set up or edit any type of record that you would like, based upon what you would like to do - A, AAAA, MX, TXT, SRV, CNAME, etc. This will permit 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, and so on. You can even register private name servers for each domain name you have bought through us and use them instead of our default ones not just for this domain name, but also for any other domain which will be hosted within the same account. The whole DNS administration service is offered free of charge.
