Every registered domain name has no less than 2 Name Server records which show where it's hosted i.e. by using these records you point your domain to the servers of a particular web hosting provider. That way, you have got both your website and your e-mails managed by the very same provider. On the lower level of the Domain Name System (DNS), however, there are lots of other records, for instance A and MX. The former reveals which server manages the site for a given Internet domain and is always an IP address (123.123.123.123), while the second one shows which server manages the emails and is always an alphanumeric string (mx1.domain.com). For instance, when you type a domain name in your browser, your request is directed through the global DNS system to the provider whose NS records the domain name uses and from there you may be forwarded to the servers of another company provided 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 e-mails means you may have your website and your emails with two different providers if you would like.

Custom MX and A Records in Shared Hosting

With a shared hosting plan from our company, you'll be able to set up or modify the A and MX records of your domain addresses and subdomains with ease via our sophisticated Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Editing the default records takes two clicks and the setup of a new record takes only a few more clicks, so although you may have never dealt with such matters, you will not encounter any issues. We also have a comprehensive help section that makes things even easier. If you'd like to switch your email provider and you have to set up a number of MX records in addition to the default 2, you can pick their priority i.e. which record will manage 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're going to have full control over your domain addresses and subdomains and you're going to be able to handle their A and MX records very easily and at any time.

Custom MX and A Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With the semi-dedicated hosting that we provide, you will have complete control over the records of all domain addresses and subdomains that you add in your hosting account. You can easily check what A and MX records each 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 want to switch your web or e-mail hosting provider, you can update the necessary record and point your domain to the other company for one of the services, while you still continue using the other one through us. You could also keep the main domain here, while you change the A record of only one of its subdomains. If you are modifying the MX records and you need additional ones on top of the standard 2 that we have, you could create them with ease and set a different priority for every single one.
