Whenever you add a domain as hosted in some account, you typically set a pair of Name Servers to direct it to that specific service provider. On their end, 3 records are created automatically when the domain name is added - one A record and two MX records. The first one is a numeric address, or IP address, that “tells” the domain where its site is, while the other two are alphanumeric and they show the server that deals with the emails for that specific domain. The site and the email hosting are usually regarded as one thing, while they are actually two different services. Having different records for them will permit you to have them with different providers if you want. As an example, some new company might have exceptional uptime for your website, but you may not want to switch your e-mail messages from your current host and by employing an A record to point the domain to the former and MX records to have the e-mails with the latter, you could get the best of both companies. These records are checked when you wish to open a website or send an e-mail - in any case, the service provider whose name servers are used for the Internet domain is going to be contacted to retrieve the A and MX records and if you've set records different from their own, the right web/mail server will then be contacted and you will see the needed website or your email will be delivered.

Custom MX and A Records in Shared Hosting

The Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with each and every Linux shared service we offer you, will enable you to view, change and create A and MX records for each domain name or subdomain inside your account. Using the DNS Records section, you will be able to view a list of all hosts within the account from a to z with their corresponding records, so any update is not going to take you more than a few clicks. Creating new records is equally simple if, for example, you want to use the e-mail services of another service provider and they ask you to create more MX records than the default 2. You can even set the priority for every MX record by setting different latency. Quite simply, when your emails are delivered, the sending server will contact the record with the smallest latency first and in case the connection times out, it's going to contact the next one. With our advanced tool, you will be able to manage the records of your domain addresses and subdomains effortlessly even when you have no prior experience with such matters.

Custom MX and A Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

With the semi-dedicated hosting service we provide, you are going to have 100 % control over the records of all domain names and subdomains 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 CP and modifying any record takes simply a few clicks. If you want to change your web or email hosting provider, you can edit the required record and direct your domain to the other service provider for one of the services, as you still continue using the other one through us. Also you can keep the main domain name here, while you modify the A record of only one of its subdomains. If you are editing the MX records and you need additional ones on top of the standard 2 that we have, you could create them with ease and set a different priority for each and every one.
