When you add a domain name as hosted in some account, you usually set a pair of Name Servers to point it to that specific company. On their end, 3 records are created automatically the moment the Internet domain is added - one A record and two MX records. The former is a numeric address, or IP address, which “tells” the domain address where its website is, while the other two are alphanumeric and they show the server that deals with the e-mails for that particular domain. The website and the e-mail hosting are typically thought to be one thing, while they are actually two different services. Having independent records for them will enable you to have them with different providers if you'd like. As an example, some new service provider might have exceptional uptime for your website, but you may not want to switch your emails from your current host and by employing an A record to point the domain address to the former and MX records to have the e-mails with the latter, you can get the best of both providers. These records are checked when you wish to open a site or send an email - in any case, the service provider whose name servers are used for the Internet domain will 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 are going to see the needed website or your email is going to be delivered.

Custom MX and A Records in Cloud Hosting

With a cloud hosting package from our company, you're going to be able to create or modify the A and MX records of your domain addresses and subdomains easily through our advanced Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Changing the default records requires 2 clicks and the creation of a new record takes just a few more clicks, so even though you may have never dealt with such matters, you'll not experience any complications. We also have an in depth help section that will make things even easier. If you would like to change your e-mail provider and you have to create a number of MX records in addition to the default two, you can pick their priority i.e. which record is going to handle your e-mails first when someone sends you a message. Usually the new provider is going to tell you what these values ought to be. With our shared plans, you'll have total control over your domains and subdomains and you'll be able to handle their A and MX records easily and at any time.

Custom MX and A Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Accessing and editing the A or MX records for each of your domain addresses or subdomains is incredibly easy if you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan through us. The accounts are handled using our in-house built Hepsia CP, which includes a section committed to the DNS records of your domains. The latter will be listed alphabetically and you could click on any of them to see both the A and the MX records. Changing any record is as simple as typing in the new one in a text box and saving the change, so in case you have never dealt with such matters before, you'll not experience any troubles if you choose to direct your website or emails to a different service provider while keeping the second service with our company. If necessary, you could also set up additional MX records and set a certain priority based on the instructions of the new provider.
