Every domain name that's registered and hosted has a lot of DNS records - some of them are set up automatically when you host a domain, others can be created by hand if required. For instance, the A record of a domain is its IP address i.e. this record shows where the site is situated; the MX records show where the e-mails are stored, while with an SRV record you can use a domain for unconventional purposes, like a Voice-over-IP service. The ability to create and modify specific records permits you to have different services with different providers if, for example, your present host provides dependable web hosting, but has issues with the email service, or you simply prefer to get a specific service from a particular company. Even though you should be able to set up and edit these records freely and with no restrictions as you own a given domain, some companies charge extra to give you this option.
Full DNS Management in Cloud Hosting
The user-friendly Hepsia hosting CP, that comes with every single Linux cloud hosting package that we offer, provides you with complete access to all domain names which are hosted in the account. With only a couple of clicks you are going to be able to see the DNS records for each domain name which you host or subdomain that you create. You could also set up or modify any sort of record that you would like, based on what you wish to do - A, AAAA, MX, TXT, SRV, CNAME, and so on. This will permit 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 on. You may even register private name servers for any Internet domain that you've obtained through us and use them instead of our standard ones not just for this domain name, but also for any other domain which will be hosted inside the same account. The full DNS administration service is offered free of charge.
