Any time you add a domain as hosted in some account, you usually set a pair of Name Servers to point it to that particular provider. On their end, 3 records are created automatically the moment the domain is added - one A record and two MX records. The former is a numeric address, or IP address, which “tells” the Internet 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 site and the email hosting are generally regarded as one thing, while they're in fact two different services. Having independent records for them will allow you to have them with different providers if you would like. As an illustration, some new service provider may have excellent uptime for your site, but you might not want to switch your e-mails from your current host and by employing an A record to point the domain name to the former and MX records to have the emails with the latter, you can get the best of both companies. These records are checked whenever you want to open a site or send an email - either way, the service provider whose name servers are used for the domain address 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're going to see the needed site or your e-mail is going to be delivered.
Custom MX and A Records in Shared Hosting
If you have a shared hosting from us, you'll be able to view, set up and change any A or MX record for your domain names. Provided that a particular domain name has our Name Servers, you are going to be able to to modify specific records by using our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and have your site or e-mails pointed to another company if you want to use only one of our services. Our state-of-the-art tool is going to enable you to have a domain name hosted here and a subdomain below it to be hosted elsewhere by modifying only its A record - this will not affect the main domain the slightest bit. If you decide to use the email services of a different service provider and they want you to set up more than 2 MX records, you can easily do this with simply a few clicks in the DNS Records section of your Control Panel. You may also set different latency for every single MX record i.e. which one will have priority.
Custom MX and A Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
Accessing and modifying the A or MX records for any of your domain addresses or subdomains is very easy if you buy a semi-dedicated server plan through our company. The accounts are managed by using our in-house built Hepsia CP, which includes a section dedicated to the DNS records of your domain names. 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 if you have never dealt with such matters before, you'll not encounter any difficulties if you decide to switch your website or e-mails to an alternative company while keeping the second service with our company. If required, you could also create additional MX records and set a certain priority in accordance with the instructions of the new provider.
