Any time you add a domain as hosted in some account, you typically set a pair of Name Servers to point it to that specific service provider. On their end, three records are created automatically right after 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 site is, while the other two are alphanumeric and they indicate the server that handles the e-mails for that specific domain. The site and the e-mail hosting are usually perceived as one thing, while they are actually two different services. Having independent records for them will permit you to have them with different providers if you would like. As an example, some new service provider might have superb uptime for your site, but you might not want to switch your e-mail messages from your current host and by using an A record to point the domain address to the former 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 site or send an email - either way, the company whose name servers are used for the domain is going to 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're going to see the needed site or your email will be delivered.
Custom MX and A Records in Web Hosting
The Hepsia hosting CP, that comes with each and every Linux web hosting which we offer, will enable you to see, change and create A and MX records for every Internet domain or subdomain in your account. Using the DNS Records section, you are going to be able to view a list of all hosts within the account from a to z with their related records, so any update will not take you more than a few mouse clicks. Creating new records is equally simple if, as an example, you would like to use the email services of a different service provider and they ask you to set up more MX records than the default two. Additionally you can set the priority for every MX record by setting different latency. To put it differently, when your e-mails are delivered, the sending server will contact the record with the smallest latency first and if the connection times out, it is going to contact the next one. With our sophisticated tool, you're going to be able to handle the records of your domains and subdomains easily even when you have no previous experience with such matters.
Custom MX and A Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With the Linux semi-dedicated hosting we offer, you're going to have 100 % control over the records of all domain names and subdomains that you add in your hosting account. You can easily check what A and MX records every one of them has through the DNS Records section of the Hepsia hosting CP and editing any record takes as little as a few mouse clicks. If you choose to switch your web or email hosting provider, you can edit the necessary record and point your domain address to the other company for one of the services, while you still keep using the other one through us. You may also keep the main domain name here, while you modify the A record of only one of its subdomains. If you are changing the MX records and you need additional ones on top of the standard two that we have, you could create them with ease and set a different priority for every one.
