Every registered domain has at least two Name Server records which show where it is hosted i.e. by using these records you point your domain address to the servers of a particular hosting company. That way, you have got both your site and your e-mails managed by the same company. On the lower level of the Domain Name System (DNS), however, there are a number of other records, for example A and MX. The former shows which server manages the site for a given domain name and is always an IP address (123.123.123.123), while the second one reveals which server deals with the emails and is always an alphanumeric string (mx1.domain.com). For instance, any time you enter a domain address in your Internet browser, your request is directed through the global DNS system to the company whose NS records the domain uses and from there you could be forwarded to the servers of a different service provider provided you have set an IP address of the latter as an A record for your Internet domain. Having separate records for the site and the emails means that you can have your website and your e-mails with two different companies if you would like.

Custom MX and A Records in Website Hosting

With a website hosting plan from our company, you are going to be able to set up or modify the A and MX records of your domains and subdomains with ease using our advanced Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Editing the default records will take two clicks and the setup of a new record takes only a few more clicks, so even though you may have never dealt with such matters, you will not experience any complications. We have an extensive help section that'll make things even easier. If you wish to change your e-mail provider and you have to create a number of MX records in addition to the standard two, you can pick their priority i.e. which record is going to handle your emails first when somebody sends you a message. Normally the new provider is going to tell you what these values should be. With our shared plans, you are going to have full control of your domains and subdomains and you'll be able to manage their A and MX records easily and at any time.

Custom MX and A Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With the Linux semi-dedicated hosting which we provide, you will have complete control over the records of all domain addresses and subdomains which you add in your hosting account. You can easily check what A and MX records each of them has from the DNS Records section of the Hepsia hosting CP and modifying any record takes simply a few clicks. If you want to switch your web or email hosting provider, you can edit the required record and point your domain address to the other company for one of the services, as you still keep using the other one through us. You can also keep the main domain name here, while you edit the A record of only one of its subdomains. In case you are modifying the MX records and you need additional ones on top of the default 2 that we have, you can create them with ease and set a different priority for each one.
