Any active domain that's added in a hosting account includes a variety of records that enable 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 particular records created through the hosting company such as A (IP address of the website/server), MX (e-mail server), SRV (employing a domain name for non-website purposes on a particular port number like Voice-over-IP), etc. By having access to these records and by being able to modify them, you can have your website with company A and your emails with company B, for example. This offers you more flexibility since you can pick the best provider for each of these services and you don't have to stick with one company. As soon as you choose a hosting company, you have to make sure that you have access to all DNS records freely since some companies have an additional fee for this feature.

Full DNS Management in Shared Web Hosting

With each and every Linux shared web hosting that we offer you can create, delete or change any DNS record for any domain or subdomain hosted inside your account easily. The Hepsia Control Panel that we offer with the shared accounts comes with a simple and easy-to-use tool that will allow you to see all existing records and set up new ones with several clicks. You are going to be able to set up A, MX, CNAME, TXT, SRV and AAAA records, which will offer you full control over your domain addresses as well as the possibility to pick the company that will provide you with a given service. As an illustration, if your site is on our leading-edge cloud platform, it will need a couple of clicks to point your emails to be managed by a different provider. Unlike other registrar and web hosting companies, we do not charge an extra fee to offer you the DNS management service.
