Whenever you add a domain name as hosted in some account, you typically set a pair of Name Servers to point it to that particular service provider. On their end, 3 records are set up automatically the moment 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 Internet domain where its website is, while the other two are alphanumeric and they indicate the server that handles the e-mails for that particular domain. The site and the e-mail hosting are typically perceived as one thing, when they're actually two different services. Having separate records for them will allow you to have them with different providers if you wish. As an illustration, some new service provider can have outstanding uptime for your website, but you might not want to switch your e-mail messages from your current host and by using an A record to point the domain address to the first and MX records to have the emails with the second, you will get the best of both providers. These records are checked when you want to open a website or send an email - in any case, the provider whose name servers are used for the Internet domain is going to 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'll see the needed site or your email will be delivered.

Custom MX and A Records in Shared Hosting

With a shared hosting package from our company, you're going to be able to set up or change the A and MX records of your domain names and subdomains with ease by using our leading-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Modifying the default records will take two clicks and the creation of a new record takes just a couple of more clicks, so although you may have never dealt with such matters, you won't experience any issues. We've got an in depth help section that'll make things even easier. If you'd like to change your email provider and you have to create several MX records in addition to the standard two, you can choose their priority i.e. which record will deal with your emails first when somebody sends you a message. Normally the new provider is going to tell you what these values need to be. With our shared plans, you'll have complete control over your domain names and subdomains and you are going to be able to handle their A and MX records very 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 domains or subdomains is incredibly easy if you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan from our company. The accounts are managed via our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel, which includes a section committed to the DNS records of your domain names. The latter is going to be listed alphabetically and you could click on each of them to see both the A and the MX records. Modifying any record will be 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 simply won't encounter any difficulties if you choose to move your site or emails to another provider while keeping the second service with our company. When necessary, you may also create additional MX records and set a specific priority depending on the instructions of the new provider.
