Any active domain that is added in a hosting account includes a number of records which allow it to work properly. In the typical 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 certain records created through the hosting company like A (IP address of the website/server), MX (e mail server), SRV (using a domain name for non-website purposes on a certain port number like Voice-over-IP), and many others. With access to these records and by being in a position to modify them, you can have your site with company A and your emails with company B, for illustration. This gives you more freedom because you can pick the best provider for every one of these services and you do not have to stick with only one company. After you pick a hosting company, you have to make sure that you can access all DNS records freely since some providers have an extra fee for this feature.

Full DNS Management in Shared Website Hosting

The user-friendly Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with every single shared website hosting we offer, provides you with 100 % access to all domain names that are hosted in the account. With only a couple of clicks you're going to be able to see the DNS records of any domain name that you host or subdomain which you set up. You may also create or edit any kind of record that you would like, based on what you would like to do - A, AAAA, MX, TXT, SRV, CNAME, etc. This will allow you to define an email server, direct a domain name to a VOIP or online game server provided by another company, create forwarding, and so forth. You can even register private name servers for each domain name you have purchased through us and use them instead of our default ones not only for this domain name, but also for any other domain which will be hosted within the same account. The whole DNS administration service is provided free of charge.
