Any active domain that's added in a hosting account has a number of records which allow it to perform properly. In the standard case, the name servers (NS records) show where the Internet domain is hosted and they are set on the side of the registrar company, but on the lower level there are particular records set through the hosting company such as A (IP address of the website/server), MX (e mail server), SRV (using a domain for non-website purposes on a certain port number such as 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 instance. This offers you more freedom since you can choose the best provider for every single one of these services and you do not have to stick with only one company. When you choose 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 function.

If you get a shared web hosting through us, you will have full DNS control for each and every domain through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.

The DNS Records section of the CP is user-friendly and with an in-depth Help section where you can find more info concerning the function of the various records and how to create them.
