Any active domain name that is added in a hosting account features a number of records which allow it to work properly. In the standard case, the name servers (NS records) show where the 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 address for non-website purposes on a particular port number like Voice-over-IP), and so on. Having access to these records and by being in a position to modify them, you can have your website with company A and your e-mails with company B, for illustration. This gives you more freedom as you can select the best provider for each of these services and you don't need to stick with a single company. As soon as you choose a hosting company, you have to make sure that you have access to all DNS records freely because some companies have an extra fee for this function.
Full DNS Management in Semi-dedicated Servers
The semi-dedicated plans are handled using our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and one of its features is an easy-to-use DNS records tool where you can see all existing records for every domain address or subdomain that you host inside the account. With just a few mouse clicks you are going to be able to modify any existing record or create a new one if you need it for any purpose. This will permit you to choose the provider for each individual service - for instance, for a given domain name you can have the site here, the emails through a second company and a VOIP service that uses the same Internet domain as a host through a third one. Our system allows you to change or set up any kind of records that you need - NS, A, MX, CNAME, TXT, SRV, AAAA, and so forth., and we'll never ask you for any fee to be able to access and manage these records as other companies may do.
