Whenever you add a domain name as hosted in some account, you normally set a pair of Name Servers to direct it to that specific provider. On their end, 3 records are set up automatically the moment the domain address is added - one A record and two MX records. The first one is a numeric address, or IP address, which “tells” the Internet domain where its website is, while the other two are alphanumeric and they reveal the server that manages the e-mails for that particular Internet domain. The website and the e-mail hosting are generally considered to be one thing, when they are actually two different services. Having separate records for them will enable you to have them with different companies if you'd like. For example, some new company can have exceptional uptime for your website, 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 former and MX records to have the e-mails with the latter, you could get the best of both providers. These records are checked whenever you want to open a site or send an e-mail - in any case, the provider whose name servers are used for the Internet domain will 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'll see the needed website or your e-mail is going to be delivered.

Custom MX and A Records in Shared Hosting

With a shared hosting plan from us, you're going to be able to create or change the A and MX records of your domains and subdomains easily using our innovative Hepsia hosting CP. Changing the default records will take 2 clicks and the setup of a new record takes only a few more clicks, so even though you may have never dealt with such matters, you won't encounter any issues. We have a large help section that'll make things even easier. If you'd like to change your e-mail provider and you have to set up several MX records in addition to the standard two, you can choose their priority i.e. which record is going to handle your emails first when someone sends you a message. Normally the new provider will tell you what these values should be. With our shared plans, you will have full control over your domain names and subdomains and you are going to be able to manage their A and MX records easily and at any time.

Custom MX and A Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

With the semi-dedicated hosting plans which we offer, you're going to have full control over the records of all domains and subdomains which you add in your hosting account. You can easily check what A and MX records each one of them has through the DNS Records section of the Hepsia hosting CP and changing any record requires as little as a few mouse clicks. If you want to switch your web or e-mail hosting provider, you can edit the required record and direct your domain name to the other company for one of the services, as you still carry on using the other one through us. You can also keep the main domain address here, while you modify the A record of only one of its subdomains. When you're modifying the MX records and you need additional ones on top of the default two we have, you can create them with ease and set a different priority for every one.
