Any time you add a domain name as hosted in some account, you normally set a pair of Name Servers to point it to that specific provider. On their end, 3 records are created automatically right after the Internet domain is added - one A record and two MX records. The first one is a numeric address, or IP address, that “tells” the Internet domain where its site is, while the other two are alphanumeric and they show the server that handles the emails for that particular domain. The website and the email hosting are typically regarded as one thing, while they are in fact two different services. Having independent records for them will enable you to have them with different providers if you wish. For instance, some new service provider might have exceptional 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 name to the first 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 want to open a site or send an e-mail - either way, the provider whose name servers are used for the domain address is going to be contacted to retrieve the A and MX records and if you've set records different from their own, the correct web/mail server will then be contacted and you're going to see the needed website or your e-mail is going to be delivered.

Custom MX and A Records in Shared Hosting

The Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with each and every shared hosting package we provide, will allow you to see, change and create A and MX records for any domain name or subdomain within your account. Through the DNS Records section, you're going to be able to view a list of all hosts inside the account from a to z with their corresponding records, so any update is not going to take you more than a few mouse clicks. Creating new records is as easy if, for example, you want to use the email services of another service provider and they ask you to create more MX records than the default two. You may also set the priority for each 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'll contact the next one. With our innovative tool, you will be able to control the records of your domain names and subdomains effortlessly even when you have no prior experience with such matters.

Custom MX and A Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With the semi-dedicated hosting we offer, you'll have 100 % control over the records of all domain addresses and subdomains that you add in your hosting account. You can easily check what A and MX records each one of them has using the DNS Records section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and editing any record requires simply a couple of mouse clicks. If you choose to switch your web or e-mail hosting provider, you can change the required record and direct your domain address 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 here, while you edit the A record of only one of its subdomains. In case you are editing 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 each one.
