Each and every domain that is registered and hosted has lots of DNS records - some of them are set up automatically when you host a domain, others can be set up by hand if necessary. As an example, the A record of a domain address is its IP address i.e. this record reveals where the site is located; the MX records show where the e-mails are stored, while using an SRV record you can use a domain address for unconventional purposes, such as a Voice-over-IP service. Being able to set up and modify certain records allows you to have different services with different providers if, for illustration, your present host provides good web hosting, but has problems with the e-mail service, or you simply prefer to get a specific service from a particular company. Even though you will be able to set up and modify these records freely and with no limits as you own a given domain, lots of companies charge extra to give you this option.

Full DNS Management in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you get a semi-dedicated server through our company, we're going to provide you with full control over all DNS records of every single domain or subdomain in your web hosting account. The DNS Records tool of our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel is simple and intuitive enough to be used even by people without experience, plus it provides an in-depth help section that features not only articles, but also comprehensive video tutorials. With several mouse clicks you can see all current records and you can create new ones just as easily. This will permit you to use different services with different companies for a given domain because you can have separate A (web server) and MX (email server) records. You'll also be able to set up AAAA, SRV, TXT as well as CNAME records to forward your domain name or use it for a certain non-website service like VOIP, game server host, and so on. If you wish, you may also create private name servers for each of the domain addresses registered through our company absolutely free.
