Any time you add a domain name as hosted in some account, you typically set a pair of Name Servers to direct it to that particular provider. On their end, three records are created automatically as soon as the Internet domain is added - one A record and two MX records. The first one is a numeric address, or IP address, that “tells” the domain where its site is, while the other two are alphanumeric and they indicate the server that deals with the e-mails for that specific Internet domain. The site and the e-mail hosting are typically perceived as one thing, when they're in fact two different services. Having separate records for them will permit you to have them with different providers if you wish. For instance, some new company might have superb uptime for your website, but you might not want to switch your e-mails from your current host and by using an A record to point the domain to the first and MX records to have the e-mails with the second, you can get the best of both companies. These records are checked when you want to open a website or send an e-mail - in either case, the provider whose name servers are used for the domain address will be contacted to retrieve the A and MX records and if you have set records different from their own, the right web/mail server will then be contacted and you'll see the needed site or your e-mail is going to be delivered.
Custom MX and A Records in Hosting
With a hosting package from us, you're going to be able to set up or modify the A and MX records of your domain addresses and subdomains effortlessly via our leading-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Editing the default records takes 2 clicks and the creation of a new record requires just a couple of more clicks, so even if you have never dealt with such matters, you'll not experience any issues. We also have an extensive help section that'll make things even easier. If you wish to change your email provider and you have to create a number of MX records in addition to the default two, you can choose their priority i.e. which record will deal with your e-mails first when somebody sends you a message. Usually the new provider is going to tell you what these values should be. With our shared plans, you are going to have complete control over 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 Servers
With the Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans which we offer, you'll 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 via the DNS Records section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and modifying any record requires only a couple of mouse clicks. If you decide to switch your web or email hosting provider, you can edit the required record and point your domain to the other company for one of the services, while you still carry on using the other one through us. You could also keep the main domain here, while you modify the A record of only one of its subdomains. If you're editing the MX records and you need additional ones on top of the default 2 that we have, you could create them with ease and set a different priority for each and every one.
