Every single domain that is registered and hosted has a great deal of DNS records - some of them are created automatically when you host a domain, others can be set up by hand if required. For example, the A record of a domain name is its IP address i.e. this record shows where the website is located; the MX records show where the e-mails are stored, while through an SRV record you can use a domain for unconventional purposes, including a Voice-over-IP service. To be able to create and modify particular records allows you to have different services with different providers if, for example, your present host provides stable web hosting, but has problems with the e-mail service, or you simply prefer to get a specific service from a specific company. Even though you will be able to set up and edit these records freely and without any limits as you own a given domain name, lots of companies charge extra to give you this option.
Full DNS Management in Cloud Website Hosting
With every Linux cloud website hosting we offer you will be able to set up, delete or modify any DNS record for any domain name or subdomain hosted within your account with ease. The Hepsia CP that we offer with the shared accounts includes a simple and user-friendly tool that will enable you to see all current records and set up new ones with just a few clicks. You will be able to create A, MX, CNAME, TXT, SRV or AAAA records, that will offer you complete control over your domain addresses as well as the chance to choose the company that will provide you with a given service. As an illustration, if your website is on our sophisticated cloud platform, it will require a couple of clicks to direct your e-mails to be managed by a different provider. As opposed to other registrar and web hosting companies, we do not charge an extra fee to provide you the DNS management service.
