Whenever you add a domain as hosted in some account, you typically set a pair of Name Servers to direct it to that particular provider. On their end, three records are created automatically when the Internet domain is added - one A record and two MX records. The first one is a numeric address, or IP address, which “tells” the domain name where its site is, while the other two are alphanumeric and they show the server that deals with the emails for that particular Internet domain. The site and the email hosting are typically thought to be one thing, while they are actually two different services. Having different records for them will permit you to have them with different providers if you'd like. As an illustration, some new company might have fantastic uptime for your site, but you may not want to switch your e-mail messages from your current host and by using an A record to point the domain to the former and MX records to have the emails with the second, you can 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 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've set records different from their own, the correct web/mail server will then be contacted and you will see the needed site or your e-mail will be delivered.

Custom MX and A Records in Cloud Hosting

With a cloud hosting plan from us, you'll be able to set up or modify the A and MX records of your domain addresses and subdomains easily using our sophisticated Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Editing the default records will take two clicks and the setup of a new record requires only a couple of more clicks, so in case you have never dealt with such matters, you will not experience any complications. We also have a comprehensive help section that makes things even easier. If you want to switch your e-mail provider and you have to set up a number of MX records in addition to the default 2, you can pick their priority i.e. which record will deal with your e-mails first when someone sends you a message. Normally the new provider is going to tell you what these values need to be. With our shared plans, you're going to have complete control of your domain addresses 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 Hosting

Accessing and modifying the A or MX records for any one of your domain addresses or subdomains is incredibly easy if you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan through us. The accounts are managed by using our in-house built Hepsia CP, which has a section committed to the DNS records of your domain addresses. The latter will be listed alphabetically and you could click on any one of them to see both the A and the MX records. Editing any record will be as easy as typing in the new one in a text box and saving the change, so in case you have never dealt with such matters before, you won't encounter any difficulties if you want to move your website or emails to some other service provider while keeping the second service with our company. When required, you can also create additional MX records and set a certain priority in accordance with the recommendations of the new provider.
