Whenever you add a domain as hosted in some account, you usually set a pair of Name Servers to direct it to that specific company. On their end, three records are created automatically right after 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 where its site is, while the other two are alphanumeric and they show the server that handles the emails for that particular domain address. The site and the email hosting are generally perceived as one thing, while they're in reality two different services. Having separate records for them will allow you to have them with different companies if you want. As an example, some new company may have exceptional uptime for your site, but you might not want to switch your emails from your current host and by using an A record to point the domain address to the first and MX records to have the emails with the latter, you could get the best of both providers. These records are checked when you want to open a site or send an email - in any case, the provider whose name servers are used for the domain is going to 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 will see the needed website or your e-mail will be delivered.

Custom MX and A Records in Hosting

The Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with each and every hosting service which we provide, will allow you to view, change and set up A and MX records for any domain or subdomain within your account. Using the DNS Records section, you're going to be able to see a list of all hosts within the account in alphabetical order with their related records, so any update won't take you more than a couple of mouse clicks. Creating new records is equally easy if, for instance, you want to use the e-mail services of another provider and they ask you to create more MX records than the default two. You may also set the priority for every single MX record by setting different latency. Quite simply, when your e-mails are delivered, the sending server is going to contact the record with the smallest latency first and in case the connection times out, it is going to contact the next one. Through our innovative tool, you're going to be able to control the records of your domain addresses and subdomains easily even when 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 domains 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 only a couple of mouse clicks. If you decide to switch your web or email hosting provider, you can change the necessary record and direct your domain name to the other service provider for one of the services, while you still keep using the other one through us. Also you can keep the main domain here, while you modify the A record of only one of its subdomains. When you're editing the MX records and you need additional ones on top of the default two we have, you could create them with ease and set a different priority for each and every one.
