Professionals and New Users alike all Love Love Love! our Easy yet Powerful Controls (and Security!)
- ALL FREE, Starting with Full DNS Zone Control for Your New Domain Name and for any Sub-Domains You Choose To Create on your domain. You control:
- A Records: definitive host location record, on any IP or Name-Servers, or to an upstream host's DNS Zone, a DNS Service, DNS Cluster, or even Dynamic DNS for home or portable hosting over frequently changing IP addresses, if you desire
- AAAA Records: serve the same purpose as (above) A Records, but for IPv6 Addresses, now very commonly in use, and probably already assigned to you if you're on a non-HostingDude.com server
- CNAME Records: "canonical" (common-name) domain (or sub-domain) pointing" to alternate server/host, DNS Cluster, aliasing, or other useful seamless re-direction by domain name
- TXT Records: For Domain, Identity, and Ownership validation, SSL Certificate validation, registration and verification with tracking services such as Google Analytics or Google Webmaster Tools, Alexa Rank Monitoring, or thousands of other site-monitoring services that require a TXT entry in your DNS Zone to identify/authenticate/verify your control over your new domain name
- An Email Sender's MUST HAVE! Those TXT Records are used provide crucial email sender authentication/validation via DKIM and SPF, protecting your outbound (SMTP relayed) mail against rejection by the 93% of transient and recipient servers requiring these must-have security records as spam-guards
- MX and Mail Records with Priorities: Together these records set up your inbound mail routing and/or forwarding and/or resident mail servers whether hosted with HostingDude's Spam-Free Business-Class Email, or your own email servers, or even for external "third-party" mail services if desired.
- PTR Records: Pointers give your new domain name Reverse DNS (IP resolves to name or site) allow a vast array of options from IP-based hosting on your servers or 3rd-party servers, to fancy tricks like reverse pass-through and redirection via anything from an NGINX server to a reverse mod_proxy configured Apache server. Plus all the basics that PTR records are valuable for, including improving SEO.
- (For most above "advanced" PTR Record uses, a Dedicated IP address is required — available here (just follow that highlighted link) along with low pricing on the most options in SSL Certificates to secure your hosted domain — options such as multi-domain, elevated validations, multi sub-domain wildcard certificates and server-wide wildcards, with multi-year term options for less frequent renewal/re-issuance hassles.)
- SRV Records: Tell the world your server's location, improving SEO when properly utilized.
- Many, many more record types and features — too much to cover here, granting you full DNS Control over your new domain name

Get Direct Access to your sites, server, or accounts. Access via sFTP, Shell, over Terminal, plus any and all other ports and protocols you designate. All via IP Address. Connect securely!

*Availability in Web Site Builder products (Personal, Business, and/or eCommerce Site Builders), may vary by Site Builder version you have purchased, and, if available, may require purchasing as an add-on to that product (and not by purchase on this page). Please call us at 800-655-5512 if you are trying to add a dedicated IP address to a website builder product.
IP-based hosting, i.e., hosting without a canonical FQDN (Fully Qualified Domain Name) and especially IP-based POP/SMTP/IMAP may be restricted/limited/prohibited by HostingDude.com and none of these practices are recommended in any case. Browser requests (i.e., ports 80 and 443) directly to your dedicated IP addresses are allowed but calls to these html-over-http/https ports should generally resolve or re-direct to a FQDN to prevent reputation damage to the IP address and its broader CIDRs, which are herein leased to you but remain assigned to HostingDude and/or its upstream providers by ARIN registry.
Large numbers of IP addresses (issued in blocks) require IP Justification and generally deployment of at least one unique canonical FQDN on 80% of IPs provided within 30-60 days. If you have a small number of sites with unique IP addresses this is unlikely to affect you. We will contact you if we need the IP Justification paperwork (a very basic and simple form) for an order of a large number of IPs.
Our highly trained, courteous support staff is waiting to take your call. Whatever time it takes to assist you, that's the time you'll receive. We'll resolve any issue to your complete satisfaction.
