The term “hosting” doesn't describe a particular service, but a number of services that offer different functions to a domain address. Having a website and e-mails, for instance, are two individual services although in the general case they come together, so most people consider them as one single service. In fact, each and every domain has a several DNS records called A and MX, which show the server that manages each specific service - the first one is a numeric IP address, which defines where the site for the domain name is loaded from, while the latter is an alphanumeric string, which shows the server that manages the e-mails for the domain name. For instance, an A record is and an MX record would be mx1.domain.com. Each time you open a site or send an e-mail, the global DNS servers are contacted to check the name servers that a Internet domain has and the traffic/message is first forwarded to that company. When you have custom records on their end, the Internet browser request or the e-mail will then be directed to the correct server. The idea behind employing separate records is that the two services use different web protocols and you may have your website hosted by one company and the e-mail messages by another.

Custom MX and A Records in Shared Web Hosting

If you have a shared web hosting from our company, you are going to be able to view, set up and change any A or MX record for your domains. Assuming that a particular domain name has our Name Servers, you'll be able to modify certain records using our Hepsia hosting CP and have your site or e-mails pointed to another service provider if you want to use only one of our services. Our advanced tool is going to allow 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 in any way. If you want to use the email services of a different company and they want you to create more than two MX records, you can easily do it with only a few mouse clicks in the DNS Records section of your CP. You can even set different latency for every single MX record i.e. which one will have priority.

Custom MX and A Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with our semi-dedicated servers, will permit you to see the A and MX records for each of the domain addresses or subdomains in your account and if necessary, to update any of them or set up new ones. Managing these records is incredibly easy since all domains/subdomains will be listed alphabetically, so modifying a record is as simple as entering it in a box and saving the change. Creating a new one takes only a few more clicks and if you experience any troubles, you can check out our instructional videos on how to set up A and MX records. Our system is user-friendly enough to be used by people with no previous experience, yet sophisticated enough to offer you full control of all records and to permit you to have different A records even for domain.com and www.domain.com. If you're switching your e-mails to a different provider and they ask you to create more than two different MX records, you can select the priority of each one.
