Each and every domain that's registered and hosted has a great deal of DNS records - some of them are set up automatically when you host a domain, others can be created by hand if required. As an illustration, the A record of a domain address is its IP address i.e. this record reveals where the site is situated; the MX records reveal where the e-mails are stored, while using an SRV record you can use a domain for unconventional purposes, for instance a Voice-over-IP service. The ability to set up and modify specific records enables you to have different services with different companies if, for example, your current host provides dependable web hosting, but has issues with the email service, or you simply prefer to get a certain service from a specific company. Even though you will be able to create and modify these records freely and without any restrictions as you own a given domain address, a lot of companies charge extra to give you this option.

The user-friendly Hepsia hosting CP, that comes with every single Linux shared hosting that we offer, gives you total access to all domains which are hosted in the account. With just a couple of clicks you'll be able to see the DNS records for each domain which you host or subdomain that you set up. You could also set up or modify any type of record that you would like, based on what you would like to do - A, AAAA, MX, TXT, SRV, CNAME, and so forth. This will enable you to define a mail server, point a domain address to a VOIP or online game server provided by another company, create forwarding, and so on. You may also register private name servers for every Internet domain you have purchased through us and use them instead of our standard ones not just for this domain name, but also for any other domain that'll be hosted within the same account. The full DNS administration service is provided free of charge.
