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 is its IP address i.e. this record reveals where the web site is located; the MX records show where the emails are handled, while using an SRV record you can use a domain for unconventional purposes, including a Voice-over-IP service. The ability to create and modify specific records enables you to have different services with different providers if, for illustration, your present host provides good web hosting, but has difficulties with the email service, or you simply prefer to get a specific service from a specific company. While you must be able to create and edit these records freely and with no limits as you own a given domain address, lots of companies charge extra to give you this option.

Full DNS Management in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you buy a semi-dedicated server from us, we're going to provide you with full control over all DNS records of any domain name or subdomain inside 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 individuals with no experience, plus it provides a comprehensive help section that includes not just articles, but also in-depth video tutorials. With a couple of clicks you can see all current records and you can set up new ones just as easily. This will allow you to use different services with separate providers for a given domain address because you can have separate A (web server) and MX (mail server) records. You'll also be able to create AAAA, SRV, TXT or CNAME records to forward your domain or use it for a specific non-website service like VOIP, game server host, and so forth. If you would like, you may also create private name servers for any one of the domain addresses registered through our company at no extra cost.
