Any active domain name that's added in a hosting account features a number of records which allow it to perform properly. In the typical case, the name servers (NS records) show where the Internet domain is hosted and they are set on the side of the registrar company, but on the lower level there are specific records set through the hosting company such as A (IP address of the website/server), MX (e-mail server), SRV (employing a domain for non-website purposes on a particular port number like Voice-over-IP), and so on. With access to these records and by being in a position to edit them, you can have your web site with company A and your emails with company B, for instance. This gives you more independence because you can choose the best provider for every single one of these services and you do not have to stick to a single company. As soon as you choose a hosting company, you have to make certain that you can access all DNS records freely because some companies have an additional fee for this feature.

Full DNS Management in Shared Hosting

With every shared hosting plan we offer you are able to set up, remove or modify any DNS record for any domain or subdomain hosted inside your account in no time. The Hepsia Control Panel we offer with the shared accounts has a simple and easy-to-use tool that will enable you to see all existing records and create new ones with just several mouse clicks. You will be able to create A, MX, CNAME, TXT, SRV and AAAA records, which will offer you complete control over your domains as well as the possibility to select the company that will provide you with a given service. As an example, if your site is on our leading-edge cloud platform, it will require a couple of clicks to point your emails to be managed by a different provider. In contrast to other registrar and web hosting companies, we do not charge an extra fee to offer you the DNS management service.
