Any time you add a domain name as hosted in some account, you normally set a pair of Name Servers to point it to that specific provider. On their end, 3 records are created automatically as soon as the domain address is added - one A record and two MX records. The former is a numeric address, or IP address, that “tells” the Internet domain where its site is, while the other two are alphanumeric and they reveal the server that handles the emails for that particular domain. The site and the email hosting are generally thought to be one thing, while they're in reality two different services. Having separate records for them will enable you to have them with different companies if you wish. As an illustration, some new service provider can have excellent uptime for your site, but you may 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 will get the best of both providers. These records are checked whenever you want to open a website or send an email - in any case, the service provider whose name servers are used for the Internet domain is going to be contacted to retrieve the A and MX records and if you have set records different from their own, the correct web/mail server will then be contacted and you're going to see the needed website or your email will be delivered.

Custom MX and A Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

With the semi-dedicated plans we offer, you will have total control over the records of all domain names and subdomains 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 modifying any record requires as little as 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 name 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 address 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 default 2 we have, you could create them with ease and set a different priority for each and every one.
