Any active domain name that is added in a hosting account features a variety of records which allow it to function properly. In the standard case, the name servers (NS records) show the location where the domain name is hosted and they're set on the side of the registrar company, but on the lower level there are certain records set through the hosting company like A (IP address of the website/server), MX (e mail server), SRV (using a domain address for non-website purposes on a specific port number such as Voice-over-IP), and many others. By 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 instance. This offers you more flexibility because you can select the best provider for each of these services and you don't have to stick with a single company. When you pick a hosting company, you have to make sure that you can access all DNS records freely as some providers have an additional fee for this function.

You'll have full control of the DNS records of your domains and subdomains with any of our Linux shared hosting. Through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you're going to be able to access an easy-to-use tool where you can see all existing records or create new ones with no more than a few mouse clicks. Aside from the default A and MX records, you can set up CNAME, TXT, SRV, and you could even set up private name servers for any domain name that is registered with us. The custom records will provide you with a lot of overall flexibility and will permit you to do things such as hosting a subdomain on our servers while the main domain is hosted elsewhere or or vice versa, using a third-party e mail service, and so on. We're never going to ask for any fees from you to be able to manage the DNS records of your domain addresses plus the service comes standard with all shared plans.
