Every single registered domain has at least 2 Name Server records that show where it is hosted i.e. by using these records you point your Internet domain to the servers of a certain website hosting company. In this way, you have got both your site and your emails managed by the exact same company. On the lower level of the Domain Name System (DNS), nevertheless, there are a number of other records, such as A and MX. The first one shows which server handles the website for a given domain name and is always an IP address (123.123.123.123), while the latter indicates which server deals with the emails and is always an alphanumeric string (mx1.domain.com). As an example, any time you enter a domain address in your web browser, your request is directed through the global DNS system to the provider whose NS records the domain uses and from there you may be directed to the servers of another service provider if you have set an IP address of the latter as an A record for your Internet domain. Having separate records for the website and the emails means that you can have your website and your emails with two different providers if you would like.
Custom MX and A Records in Hosting
If you have a Linux hosting from us, you will be able to see, create and change any A or MX record for your domain names. So long as a given domain has our Name Servers, you are going to be able to to change particular records using our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and have your site or e-mails directed to another provider if you wish to use only one of our services. Our innovative tool is going to enable you to have a domain address hosted here and a subdomain below it to be hosted somewhere else by modifying only its A record - this will not affect the main domain address the slightest bit. If you decide to use the e-mail services of another service provider and they want you to create more than two MX records, you can easily do this with simply a few mouse clicks in the DNS Records section of your Control Panel. You can also set different latency for every MX record i.e. which one will have priority.
Custom MX and A Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With the Linux semi-dedicated hosting which 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 every one of them has using the DNS Records section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and editing any record takes just a couple of clicks. If you want to switch your web or email hosting provider, you can update the required record and direct your domain address to the other company for one of the services, while you still continue using the other one through us. Also you can keep the main domain address here, while you edit the A record of only one of its subdomains. In case you are changing the MX records and you need additional ones on top of the standard 2 we have, you can create them with ease and set a different priority for each one.
