Any active domain name that is added in a hosting account includes a variety of records which allow it to work properly. In the general case, the name servers (NS records) show the location where the Internet domain is hosted and they're set on the side of the registrar company, but on the lower level there are certain records set 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 particular port number such as Voice-over-IP), and so on. By having access to these records and by being able to modify them, you can have your website with company A and your e-mail messages with company B, for illustration. This offers you more freedom as you can select the best provider for each of these services and you do not have to stick to one company. As soon as you choose a hosting company, you have to make sure that you have access to all DNS records freely as some providers have an additional fee for this function.

Full DNS Management in Cloud Hosting

With each and every cloud plan we offer you can set up, delete or modify any DNS record for any Internet domain or subdomain hosted inside your account easily. The Hepsia CP we offer with the shared accounts comes with a simple and intuitive tool that will allow you to see all current records and set up new ones with just a couple of clicks. You are going to be able to set up A, MX, CNAME, TXT, SRV or AAAA records, that will provide you with complete control over your domain addresses plus the chance to pick the company that will provide you with a given service. For example, if your site is on our state-of-the-art cloud platform, it will take a couple of clicks to direct your e-mail to be managed by a different provider. As opposed to other registrar and hosting companies, we do not charge an additional fee to provide you the DNS management service.
