Every single registered domain has no less than two Name Server records which show where it is hosted i.e. by using these records you point your Internet domain to the servers of a certain website hosting provider. That way, you've got both your website and your emails managed by the same provider. On the lower level of the Domain Name System (DNS), on the other hand, there are lots of other records, for instance A and MX. The former shows which server handles the site for a given Internet domain and is always an IP address (123.123.123.123), while the second one indicates which server manages the e-mails and is always an alphanumeric string (mx1.domain.com). For instance, whenever you enter a domain address in your web 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 directed to the servers of a different service provider if you have set an IP address of the latter as an A record for your domain. Having different records for the website and the emails means that you may have your website and your emails with 2 different providers if you'd like.

Custom MX and A Records in Shared Hosting

The Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with each and every Linux shared hosting that we provide, will enable 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're going to be able to see a list of all hosts in the account in alphabetical order with their corresponding records, so any update will not take you more than a couple of mouse clicks. Creating new records is equally simple if, as an illustration, you want to use the e-mail services of another company and they ask you to set up more MX records than the default two. You may also set the priority for each MX record by setting different latency. Put simply, when your e-mails are delivered, the sending server will contact the record with the smallest latency first and if the connection times out, it's going to contact the next one. Through our innovative tool, you will be able to handle the records of your domains and subdomains effortlessly even though you may have no previous experience with such matters.

Custom MX and A Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With the Linux semi-dedicated hosting which we provide, you are going to have 100 % control over the records of all domain names and subdomains which you add in your hosting account. You can easily check what A and MX records every one of them has through the DNS Records section of the Hepsia hosting CP and changing any record requires only a few mouse clicks. If you choose to switch your web or email hosting provider, you can edit the required record and point your domain address to the other service provider for one of the services, while you still continue using the other one through us. You could also keep the main domain name here, while you edit 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 we have, you can create them with ease and set a different priority for every one.
