Any time you add a domain as hosted in some account, you normally set a pair of Name Servers to point it to that particular service provider. On their end, 3 records are set up automatically the moment the domain is added - one A record and two MX records. The first one is a numeric address, or IP address, that “tells” the domain address where its site is, while the other two are alphanumeric and they show the server that deals with the e-mails for that specific domain address. The website and the e-mail hosting are typically considered to be one thing, when they are in fact two different services. Having different records for them will enable you to have them with different companies if you'd like. As an example, some new service provider may have superb uptime for your site, but you might not want to switch your emails from your current host and by employing an A record to point the domain address to the former and MX records to have the emails with the second, you can get the best of both companies. These records are checked whenever you want to open a site or send an e-mail - in either case, the company whose name servers are used for the domain will be contacted to retrieve the A and MX records and if you have set records different from their own, the correct web/mail server will then be contacted and you're going to see the needed site or your e-mail is going to be delivered.

Custom MX and A Records in Shared Website Hosting

The Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with each and every Linux shared website hosting that we provide, allows you to view, modify and create A and MX records for each domain name or subdomain within your account. From the DNS Records section, you'll be able to see a list of all hosts in the account from a to z with their related records, so any update is not going to take you more than a couple of mouse clicks. Setting up new records is as simple if, as an example, you want to use the email services of a different company and they ask you to create more MX records than the default 2. You can even set the priority for each MX record by setting different latency. To put it differently, when your emails are delivered, the sending server is going to contact the record with the smallest latency first and in case the connection times out, it'll contact the next one. Through our innovative tool, you will be able to manage the records of your domain addresses and subdomains effortlessly even if you have no previous experience with such matters.

Custom MX and A Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With the Linux semi-dedicated hosting which we offer, you will have total control over the records of all domain names and subdomains that you add in your hosting account. You can easily check what A and MX records each of them has through the DNS Records section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and changing any record requires just a few mouse clicks. If you choose to switch your web or e-mail hosting provider, you can edit the necessary record and direct your domain to the other service provider for one of the services, as you still carry on using the other one through us. You could also keep the main domain address here, while you edit the A record of only one of its subdomains. If you're changing the MX records and you need additional ones on top of the default two that we have, you could create them with ease and set a different priority for every single one.
