Each domain name that is registered and hosted has a lot of DNS records - some of them are created automatically when you host a domain, others can be created manually if necessary. As an example, the A record of a domain name is its IP address i.e. this record shows where the site is situated; the MX records show where the e-mails are managed, while using an SRV record you can use a domain for unconventional purposes, like a Voice-over-IP service. To be able to create and modify particular records permits you to have different services with different companies if, for example, your current host provides stable web hosting, but has troubles with the e-mail service, or you simply prefer to get a particular service from a certain company. While you can create and modify these records freely and without any limitations as you own a given domain address, many companies charge extra to give you this option.

The user-friendly Hepsia hosting Control Panel, that comes with every single shared website hosting plan that we offer, offers you total access to all domains which are hosted inside the account. With only several clicks you are going to be able to see the DNS records for each and every domain which you host or subdomain which you create. You can also create or edit any type of record that you would like, depending on what you would like to do - A, AAAA, MX, TXT, SRV, CNAME, etc. This will enable you to define an email server, point a domain to a VOIP or online game server provided by another company, create forwarding, and so forth. You may even register private name servers for every domain that you have obtained 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 whole DNS management service is provided free of charge.
