Having 100 % control over your domain names is something rather crucial and to be able to access and edit the DNS records for each of them is one of the things you should look for when you search for a registration or a cloud web hosting provider. You may have heard about the so-called “name servers” that show where a domain is hosted, but below them there's a whole list of records, like the A record, which is the IP address of the server hosting the site, and the MX records, which show the server that manages the e-mails for a specific domain address. These records are used if you want to have your website with one company and the e-mails with another, for example. Additionally you can use a domain name for a non-website service or direct the traffic to it using special records. Some companies ask for an extra fee to grant access to edit particular DNS records apart from the name servers.
Full DNS Management in Cloud Web Hosting
The user-friendly Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with each Linux cloud web hosting package that we offer, will provide you with total access to all domain addresses which are hosted within the account. With simply a couple of clicks you will be able to see the DNS records of any domain name you host or subdomain that you create. You can also create or modify any sort of record that you would like, based upon what you would like to do - A, AAAA, MX, TXT, SRV, CNAME, etc. This will allow you to define a mail server, direct a domain address to a VOIP or online game server provided by another company, set up forwarding, and so forth. You can also register private name servers for every domain 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 inside the same account. The complete DNS management service is provided free of charge.
