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

Custom MX and A Records in Shared Hosting

If you have a shared hosting through us, you'll be able to see, create and change any A or MX record for your domain names. Assuming that a given domain has our Name Servers, you're going to be able to modify particular records by using our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and have your site or e-mails pointed to another company if you'd like to use only one of our services. Our sophisticated tool is going to allow you to have a domain name hosted here and a subdomain below it to be hosted elsewhere by changing only its A record - this will not affect the main domain name the slightest bit. If you want to use the email services of another service provider and they want you to create more than 2 MX records, you can easily do this with simply a couple of mouse clicks in the DNS Records section of your Control Panel. You may also set different latency for every MX record i.e. which one is going to have priority.

Custom MX and A Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Accessing and modifying the A or MX records for any one of your domains or subdomains is extremely easy if you acquire a semi-dedicated server plan through our company. The accounts are handled using our in-house built Hepsia CP, which features a section committed to the DNS records of your domain names. The latter is going to be listed alphabetically and you can click on any one of them to see both the A and the MX records. Changing any record is as simple as entering the new one in a text box and saving the change, so in case you have never dealt with such matters before, you'll not experience any difficulties if you wish to point your website or emails to some other service provider while keeping the second service with our company. If needed, you can also set up additional MX records and set a certain priority in accordance with the instructions of the new provider.
