Any time 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 domain is added - one A record and two MX records. The first one is a numeric address, or IP address, which “tells” the domain address where its website is, while the other two are alphanumeric and they show the server that handles the e-mails for that particular domain name. The site and the e-mail hosting are typically considered to be one thing, while they are in reality two different services. Having separate records for them will permit you to have them with different providers if you'd like. For example, some new company might have superb uptime for your site, but you might not want to switch your emails from your current host and by using an A record to point the domain address to the former and MX records to have the e-mails with the second, you can get the best of both companies. These records are checked whenever you want to open a website or send an email - in either case, the company whose name servers are used for the domain will 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 e-mail is going to be delivered.

Custom MX and A Records in Cloud Hosting

With a cloud hosting package from us, you are going to be able to set up or modify the A and MX records of your domains and subdomains effortlessly by using our innovative Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Editing the default records requires two clicks and the setup of a new record requires only a couple of more clicks, so although you may have never dealt with such matters, you'll not encounter any complications. We've got an in depth help section that makes things even easier. If you would like to change your email provider and you have to set up a number of MX records in addition to the standard 2, you can choose their priority i.e. which record is going to manage your e-mails first when somebody sends you a message. Usually the new provider is going to tell you what these values should be. With our shared plans, you'll have 100 % control of your domain names and subdomains and you're going to be able to manage their A and MX records effortlessly and at any time.

Custom MX and A Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

With the semi-dedicated servers that we provide, you are going to have complete 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 takes only a few mouse clicks. If you choose to change your web or email hosting provider, you can edit the required record and direct your domain name to the other service provider for one of the services, while you still keep using the other one through us. You may also keep the main domain name here, while you modify the A record of only one of its subdomains. When you're editing the MX records and you need additional ones on top of the default 2 that we have, you could create them with ease and set a different priority for every one.
