Each 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 to the servers of a specific hosting provider. This way, you have both your website and your e-mails managed by the exact same company. On the lower level of the Domain Name System (DNS), nevertheless, there is a variety of other records, for example A and MX. The first one reveals which server handles the site for a given domain and is always an IP address (123.123.123.123), while the latter reveals which server handles the emails and is always an alphanumeric string (mx1.domain.com). As an example, any time you type 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 will be sent to the servers of a different provider in case you have set an IP address of the latter as an A record for your domain name. Having independent records for the website and the emails means you can have your site and your e-mails with two different companies if you'd like.
Custom MX and A Records in Shared Web Hosting
The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, that comes with each and every Linux shared web hosting that we offer, will allow you to see, change and create A and MX records for each Internet domain or subdomain within your account. From the DNS Records section, you'll be able to view 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 few mouse clicks. Setting up new records is just as easy if, as an illustration, you want to use the e-mail services of a different company and they ask you to set up more MX records than the default two. You can also set the priority for every MX record by setting different latency. Put simply, when your emails 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. Using our innovative tool, you will be able to control the records of your domain addresses and subdomains with ease even if you have no previous experience with such matters.
Custom MX and A Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we provide, you are going to have 100 % 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 one of them has from the DNS Records section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and changing any record takes simply a few mouse clicks. If you decide to switch your web or e-mail hosting provider, you can edit the necessary record and point your domain name to the other service provider for one of the services, while you still carry on using the other one through us. You may also keep the main domain name here, while you change the A record of only one of its subdomains. If you're modifying the MX records and you need additional ones on top of the default two that we have, you could create them with ease and set a different priority for every one.
