Having 100 % control of your domain names is something quite crucial and to be able to access and edit the DNS records for each of them is one of the things you need to look for when you search for a registration or a shared web hosting provider. You might have heard of the so-called “name servers” that show where a domain is hosted, but below them there's a whole set of records, for example the A record, which is the IP address of the server hosting the site, and the MX records, which show the server that deals with the e-mails for a particular domain. These records are employed if you wish to have your site with one provider and the e-mails with another, for instance. You can also use a domain for a non-website service or direct the traffic to it using special records. Some companies ask for an extra payment to give access to edit specific DNS records other than the name servers.
Full DNS Management in Shared Web Hosting
With each and every Linux shared web hosting package we offer you can set up, erase or modify any DNS record for any Internet domain or subdomain hosted within your account with ease. The Hepsia CP which we offer with the shared accounts has a simple and easy-to-use tool that will allow you to see all current records and create new ones with simply a couple of clicks. You're going to be able to create A, MX, CNAME, TXT, SRV or AAAA records, which will give you total control over your domains along with the opportunity to select the company that 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 e-mails to be managed by a different provider. Different from other registrar and hosting companies, we don't charge an additional fee to provide you the DNS management service.
