Each registered domain name has no less than 2 Name Server records that show where it is hosted i.e. by using these records you direct your Internet domain to the servers of a certain web hosting provider. This way, you have got both your site and your e-mails managed by the same provider. On the lower level of the Domain Name System (DNS), on the other hand, there are a number of other records, for example A and MX. The first one shows which server handles the website for a given domain address and is always an IP address (123.123.123.123), while the second one reveals which server manages the e-mails and is always an alphanumeric string (mx1.domain.com). For instance, whenever you type a domain address in your Internet browser, your request is directed through the global DNS system to the provider whose NS records the domain address uses and from there you may be forwarded to the servers of a different provider if you have set an IP address of the latter as an A record for your domain address. Having different records for the website and the emails means you can have your site and your e-mails with two different providers if you'd like.

Custom MX and A Records in Shared Web Hosting

With a shared web hosting plan from our company, you'll be able to create or modify the A and MX records of your domain names and subdomains effortlessly through our innovative Hepsia hosting CP. Changing the default records takes two clicks and the creation of a new record takes just a couple of more clicks, so even though you may have never dealt with such matters, you'll not experience any difficulties. We also have a large help section that will make things even easier. If you want to change your email provider and you have to create a number of MX records in addition to the standard 2, you can choose their priority i.e. which record will manage your e-mails first when somebody sends you a message. Normally the new provider is going to tell you what these values need to be. With our shared plans, you are going to have complete control of your domain names and subdomains and you are going to be able to manage their A and MX records effortlessly and at any time.

Custom MX and A Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

With the semi-dedicated hosting plans we offer, you'll have full control over the records of all domain addresses and subdomains you add in your hosting account. You can easily check what A and MX records each of them has using the DNS Records section of the Hepsia hosting CP and modifying any record takes only a few mouse clicks. If you want to change your web or email hosting provider, you can change the required record and direct your domain address to the other service provider for one of the services, as you still continue using the other one through us. You could also keep the main domain address here, while you change the A record of only one of its subdomains. If you're changing the MX records and you need additional ones on top of the default two we have, you can create them with ease and set a different priority for each one.
