Any active domain name that's added in a hosting account has a number of records that allow it to work properly. In the standard case, the name servers (NS records) show where the domain name 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 (employing a domain address for non-website purposes on a particular port number like Voice-over-IP), and so on. By having access to these records and by having the capacity to edit them, you could have your site with company A and your e-mails with company B, for instance. This offers you more independence since you can pick the best provider for every one of these services and you do not have to stick to only one company. Whenever you select a hosting company, you have to make sure that you have access to all DNS records freely since some providers have an extra fee for this function.
Full DNS Management in Shared Hosting
The user-friendly Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with every single Linux shared package we offer, provides you with full access to all domain addresses which are hosted within the account. With only a couple of mouse clicks you'll be able to see the DNS records of any domain name which you host or subdomain which you create. You may also create or modify any kind of record you want, depending on what you would like to do - A, AAAA, MX, TXT, SRV, CNAME, etc. This will permit you to define an email server, point a domain name to a VOIP or online game server provided by another company, create forwarding, and so forth. You may even register private name servers for any domain you have obtained through us and use them instead of our standard ones not just for this domain name, but also for any other domain that will be hosted in the same account. The full DNS management service is offered free of charge.

The DNS management option is provided with each semi-dedicated plan by default and at no extra cost.
