Every registered domain has a minimum of two Name Server records that show where it's hosted i.e. by using these records you point your domain name to the servers of a particular website hosting company. In this way, you have both your site and your e-mails managed by the exact same company. On the lower level of the Domain Name System (DNS), however, there are lots of other records, like A and MX. The former shows which server deals with the website for a given domain address and is always an IP address (123.123.123.123), while the second one shows which server handles the emails and is always an alphanumeric string (mx1.domain.com). For instance, any time you type a domain name in your browser, your request is forwarded through the global DNS system to the company whose NS records the domain name uses and from there you may be forwarded to the servers of another service provider in case you have set an IP address of the latter as an A record for your domain address. Having different records for the website and the emails suggests that you may have your site and your e-mails with 2 different providers if you wish.

Custom MX and A Records in Shared Web Hosting

The Hepsia hosting CP, that comes with each and every shared web hosting service we offer you, will allow you to view, change and set up A and MX records for each domain or subdomain within your account. From the DNS Records section, you'll be able to view a list of all hosts inside the account from a to z with their corresponding records, so any update will not take you more than a couple of mouse clicks. Setting up new records is just as simple if, as an illustration, you want to use the e-mail services of another company and they ask you to create more MX records than the default 2. You may also set the priority for each MX record by setting different latency. Quite simply, when your e-mails are delivered, the sending server is going to contact the record with the smallest latency first and if the connection times out, it'll contact the next one. With our state-of-the-art tool, you'll be able to manage the records of your domains and subdomains with ease even if you have no previous experience with such matters.

Custom MX and A Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With the semi-dedicated hosting that we provide, you're going to have total control over the records of all domains and subdomains 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 Control Panel and editing any record requires just a couple of mouse clicks. If you choose to switch your web or email hosting provider, you can change the necessary record and direct your domain name to the other service provider for one of the services, while you still carry on using the other one through us. Also you can keep the main domain name here, while you modify the A record of only one of its subdomains. If you are editing the MX records and you need additional ones on top of the standard 2 that we have, you can create them with ease and set a different priority for each one.
