Whenever you add a domain as hosted in some account, you normally set a pair of Name Servers to point it to that specific service provider. On their end, 3 records are created automatically the moment the domain address is added - one A record and two MX records. The former is a numeric address, or IP address, that “tells” the domain where its website is, while the other two are alphanumeric and they show the server that handles the emails for that particular domain name. The site and the e-mail hosting are often regarded as one thing, when they're in fact two different services. Having separate records for them will enable you to have them with different providers if you want. As an illustration, some new provider may have excellent 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 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 website or send an email - in any case, the service 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 have set records different from their own, the correct web/mail server will then be contacted and you will see the needed site or your email will be delivered.

Custom MX and A Records in Cloud Hosting

With a cloud hosting package from us, you are going to be able to create or modify the A and MX records of your domain names and subdomains with ease via our leading-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Modifying the default records takes two clicks and the setup of a new record requires only a few more clicks, so in case you have never dealt with such matters, you will not encounter any problems. We have a large help section that will make things even easier. If you wish to switch your e-mail provider and you have to create several MX records in addition to the standard 2, you can pick their priority i.e. which record is going to handle your emails first when somebody sends you a message. Usually the new provider will tell you what these values should be. With our shared plans, you'll have complete control over your domain names and subdomains and you will be able to handle their A and MX records effortlessly and at any time.

Custom MX and A Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With the semi-dedicated hosting services that we provide, you are going to have 100 % 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 using the DNS Records section of the Hepsia hosting CP and changing any record takes as little as a couple of clicks. If you want to change your web or email hosting provider, you can change the required record and direct your domain to the other company for one of the services, while you still continue using the other one through us. You could also keep the main domain name here, while you edit the A record of only one of its subdomains. If you are changing the MX records and you need additional ones on top of the standard 2 we have, you can create them with ease and set a different priority for each and every one.
