Any active domain which is added in a hosting account has a variety of records that permit it to work properly. In the typical 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 such as A (IP address of the website/server), MX (e mail server), SRV (using a domain address for non-website purposes on a particular port number like Voice-over-IP), and many others. Having access to these records and by being in a position to edit them, you could have your web site with company A and your e-mails with company B, for illustration. This offers you more flexibility as you can select the best provider for every one of these services and you don't have to stick to a single company. When you select a hosting company, you have to make sure that you can access all DNS records freely because some providers have an additional fee for this function.

Full DNS Management in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server through us, we are going to provide you with total control over all DNS records of every 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 experience, and it provides an extensive help section that features not just articles, but also comprehensive video tutorials. With several clicks you can see all existing records and you can set up new ones just as easily. This will allow you to use different services with different providers for a given domain since you can have separate A (web server) and MX (e-mail server) records. You'll also be able to set up AAAA, SRV, TXT and CNAME records to forward your domain name or use it for a specific non-website service like VOIP, game server host, and so forth. If you'd like, you may even set up private name servers for any of the domain addresses registered through our company totally free.
