Any active domain name that's added in a hosting account includes a number of records that permit it to work properly. In the general case, the name servers (NS records) show the location where the domain is hosted and they are set on the side of the registrar company, but on the lower level there are certain records created through the hosting company like A (IP address of the website/server), MX (e-mail server), SRV (using a domain name for non-website purposes on a specific port number like Voice-over-IP), and so on. With access to these records and by being in a position to modify them, you could have your site with company A and your e-mail messages with company B, for illustration. This offers you more independence because you can pick the best provider for each of these services and you don't have to stick with a single company. When you select a hosting company, you have to make sure that you can access all DNS records freely because some providers have an extra fee for this feature.

If you buy a Linux cloud package from us, you're going to have full DNS control for each domain name through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With only a couple of mouse clicks you're going to be able to see all present records for a certain Internet domain or subdomain, or you can set up any kind of new record - A, AAAA, MX, CNAME, SRV, TXT and so on. These records are used for various purposes - defining the web or e-mail server, using a Internet domain for a VOIP host name, and so forth. You'll also be able to create private name servers for any domain address registered through our company. The DNS Records section of the Control Panel is user-friendly and with an in-depth Help section where you can find more details concerning the purpose of the various records and the way to create them.
