How do I set up my existing domain to be used with my account if I use my nameservers?

Depending on what registrar you use, it might be a different setup. To point your domain name to our servers, you need to add the following records:

Name Type Content
@
@
TXT
A
v=spf1 ip4:{I.P} a mx ~all
{I.P}
* A {I.P}
ftp CNAME domain.com.
mail A {I.P}
www A {I.P}

 

MX Record
 
Name Priority  
mail.domain.com. 10  

Note: {I.P} stands for the I.P address that will be given to you, you can find this in your welcome email.

Please however, depending on your registrar, note that all CNAME and MX records must be terminated with a . or they will not work correctly. You need at least one MX record or no mail will be received, if this MX record points to a sub domain (like mail.domain.com), ensure there is valid DNS A or CNAME for that record.

However, if you opt to change your domain's existing nameservers to ours, we will set everything up for you.
