Any active domain which is added in a hosting account has 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 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 (email server), SRV (employing a domain address for non-website purposes on a certain port number such as Voice-over-IP), and many others. With access to these records and by being able to edit them, you could have your site with company A and your e-mail messages with company B, for example. This gives you more freedom since you can choose the best provider for each of these services and you don't need to stick to one company. When you select a hosting company, you have to make sure that you can access all DNS records freely because some companies have an extra fee for this feature.

If you purchase a semi-dedicated server from our company, we will provide you with complete control over all DNS records of every single domain address or subdomain in your web hosting account. The DNS Records tool of our in-house built Hepsia CP is simple and intuitive enough to be used even by individuals without any experience, and it comes with an in-depth help section that includes not just articles, but also thorough video tutorials.

You'll also be able to create AAAA, SRV, TXT and CNAME records to forward your domain name or use it for a particular non-website service like VOIP, online game server host, and so on. If you want, you can even set up private name servers for any of the domains registered through our company absolutely free.
