Each domain that's registered and hosted has quite a lot of DNS records - some of them are created automatically when you host a domain, others can be created manually if needed. As an example, the A record of a domain is its IP address i.e. this record shows where the website is located; the MX records reveal where the emails are handled, while through an SRV record you can use a domain name for unconventional purposes, such as a Voice-over-IP service. Being able to create and modify specific records allows you to have different services with different companies if, for example, your current host provides good web hosting, but has issues with the e-mail service, or you simply prefer to get a particular service from a certain company. Although you will be able to set up and edit these records freely and without any restrictions as you own a given domain address, some companies charge extra to give you this option.

Full DNS Management in Cloud Hosting

With every single Linux cloud hosting we offer you are able to create, delete or change any DNS record for any domain or subdomain hosted within your account with ease. The Hepsia Control Panel which we offer with the shared accounts has a simple and user-friendly tool that will allow you to see all existing records and set up new ones with simply a couple of clicks. You'll be able to set up A, MX, CNAME, TXT, SRV or AAAA records, which will provide you with total control over your domain names along with the opportunity to pick the company that will provide you with a given service. For example, if your website is on our sophisticated cloud platform, it will need a couple of clicks to point your emails to be managed by a different provider. As opposed to other registrar and hosting companies, we do not charge an extra fee to provide you the DNS management service.
