When you add a domain name as hosted in some account, you typically set a pair of Name Servers to direct it to that particular service provider. On their end, 3 records are created automatically as soon as the domain name is added - one A record and two MX records. The first one is a numeric address, or IP address, which “tells” the domain where its site is, while the other two are alphanumeric and they show the server that manages the e-mails for that particular domain name. The website and the e-mail hosting are often considered to be one thing, while they're actually two different services. Having independent records for them will permit you to have them with different companies if you wish. As an example, some new service provider could 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 name to the former and MX records to have the e-mails with the second, you will get the best of both companies. These records are checked when 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 have set records different from their own, the right web/mail server will then be contacted and you are going to see the needed site or your e-mail will be delivered.

Custom MX and A Records in Hosting

The Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with each and every Linux hosting package we provide, will permit you to view, change and set up A and MX records for any domain name or subdomain in your account. From the DNS Records section, you are going to be able to see a list of all hosts in the account in alphabetical order with their related records, so any update will not take you more than a few clicks. Setting up new records is as simple if, for instance, you want to use the email services of another service provider and they ask you to create more MX records than the default 2. You can also set the priority for every single MX record by setting different latency. To put it differently, when your emails are delivered, the sending server will contact the record with the smallest latency first and if the connection times out, it'll contact the next one. Using 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

Accessing and editing the A or MX records for any of your domain names or subdomains is incredibly easy if you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan through us. The accounts are handled by using our in-house built Hepsia CP, which has a section committed to the DNS records of your domain addresses. The latter is going to be listed alphabetically and you can click on any one of them to see both the A and the MX records. Editing any record is as easy as entering the new one in a text box and saving the change, so even when you have never dealt with such matters before, you'll not encounter any troubles if you choose to point your website or emails to a different service provider while keeping the second service with our company. If necessary, you can also create additional MX records and set a specific priority in accordance with the instructions of the new provider.
