Any active domain name which is added in a hosting account features a variety of records which allow it to perform properly. In the typical case, the name servers (NS records) show where the 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 address for non-website purposes on a particular port number such as Voice-over-IP), and many others. By having access to these records and by having the ability to modify them, you can have your site with company A and your e-mail messages with company B, for example. This gives you more overall flexibility since you can select the best provider for each of these services and you don't need to stick with only one company. As soon as you pick a hosting company, you have to make sure that you have access to all DNS records freely since some providers have an extra fee for this function.
Full DNS Management in Cloud Hosting
With each and every cloud hosting plan we offer you are able to set up, erase or change any DNS record for any domain name or subdomain hosted within your account easily. The Hepsia CP that we offer with the shared accounts features a simple and user-friendly tool which will allow you to see all existing records and set up new ones with a couple of mouse clicks. You'll be able to create A, MX, CNAME, TXT, SRV and AAAA records, which will provide you with full control over your domains as well as the opportunity to select the company which will provide you with a given service. As an illustration, if your site is on our sophisticated cloud platform, it will require a couple of mouse clicks to point your emails to be managed by a different provider. As opposed to other registrar and web hosting companies, we do not charge an additional fee to offer you the DNS management service.
