Any time you add a domain name as hosted in some account, you typically set a pair of Name Servers to direct it to that specific company. On their end, 3 records are created automatically the moment the domain is added - one A record and two MX records. The first one is a numeric address, or IP address, that “tells” the Internet domain where its website is, while the other two are alphanumeric and they indicate the server that manages the e-mails for that particular domain name. The website and the email hosting are typically perceived as one thing, when they are in reality two different services. Having independent records for them will allow you to have them with different companies if you wish. As an example, some new company could have fantastic 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 to the former and MX records to have the e-mails with the second, you can get the best of both providers. These records are checked when you wish to open a site or send an e-mail - in either case, the company whose name servers are used for the domain name 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'll see the needed site or your email will be delivered.

Custom MX and A Records in Cloud Hosting

If you have a cloud package through our company, you will be able to view, set up and modify any A or MX record for your Internet addresses. So long as a specific domain has our Name Servers, you will be able to change particular records using our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and have your website or e-mails directed to any other company if you'd like to use only one of our services. Our innovative tool will even allow you to have a domain address hosted here and a subdomain below it to be hosted elsewhere by modifying only its A record - this will not affect the main Internet domain at all. If you want to use the email services of another company and they want you to set up more than 2 MX records, you can easily do it with only a few clicks within the DNS Records section of your CP. Also you can set different latency for each MX record i.e. which one is going to have priority.

Custom MX and A Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Accessing and editing the A or MX records for any one of your domains or subdomains is incredibly easy if you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan through us. The accounts are maintained through our in-house built Hepsia CP, which includes a section devoted to the DNS records of your domain addresses. The latter will be listed alphabetically and you could click on each of them to see both the A and the MX records. Changing any record is as easy as typing in 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 experience any problems if you decide to switch your site or emails to an alternative service provider while keeping the second service with our company. When needed, you can also set up additional MX records and set a certain priority depending on the instructions of the new provider.
