Any active domain that's added in a hosting account has a variety of records which allow it to work properly. In the general case, the name servers (NS records) show where the domain is hosted and they are set on the side of the registrar company, but on the lower level there are specific records created through the hosting company such as 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. Having access to these records and by having the capacity to edit them, you could have your web site with company A and your e-mails with company B, for instance. This offers you more freedom because you can select the best provider for every one of these services and you don't have to stick to only one company. When you select a hosting company, you have to make sure that you can access all DNS records freely since some companies have an additional fee for this function.

Full DNS Management in Cloud Hosting

With every cloud hosting that we offer you can create, erase or change any DNS record for any domain address or subdomain hosted within your account easily. The Hepsia CP that we provide with the shared accounts includes a simple and intuitive tool that will enable you to see all existing records and set up new ones with only a few mouse clicks. You're going to be able to create A, MX, CNAME, TXT, SRV or AAAA records, that will offer you full control over your domain names as well as the possibility to pick the company that will provide you with a given service. As an illustration, if your website is on our sophisticated cloud platform, it will need a couple of clicks to point your e-mails to be managed by a different provider. Unlike other registrar and web hosting companies, we do not charge an additional fee to provide you the DNS management service.
