Any time you add a domain name as hosted in some account, you typically set a pair of Name Servers to direct it to that particular service provider. On their end, three records are created automatically when the domain 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 website is, while the other two are alphanumeric and they show the server that deals with the e-mails for that particular domain name. The site and the e-mail hosting are typically considered to be one thing, when they're in reality two different services. Having independent records for them will allow you to have them with different companies if you want. As an example, some new company can have excellent uptime for your site, but you might not want to switch your emails from your current host and by employing an A record to point the domain address to the former and MX records to have the emails with the latter, you could get the best of both providers. These records are checked whenever you want to open a site or send an e-mail - in either case, the provider whose name servers are used for the domain will be contacted to retrieve the A and MX records and if you've set records different from their own, the right web/mail server will then be contacted and you will see the needed site or your email is going to be delivered.

Custom MX and A Records in Shared Hosting

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each and every shared package that we offer you, allows you to view, modify and create A and MX records for any domain name or subdomain inside your account. Through the DNS Records section, you're going to be able to see a list of all hosts within the account in alphabetical order with their related records, so any update won't take you more than a couple of clicks. Creating new records is just as easy if, as an example, you wish to use the email services of a different company and they ask you to set up more MX records than the default two. Also you can set the priority for every MX record by setting different latency. In other words, 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'll contact the next one. Through our innovative tool, you will be able to control the records of your domain addresses and subdomains effortlessly even though you may have no prior experience with such matters.
