Your MX record determines what mail server your domain is associated with. Many times customers feel that hosting their email with another company works best for them. If you are one of those customers more than likely the email company you have selected will require you to change your MX record for your email to begin working with them.
The first step is to log onto your control panel.
Next you will see the “Edit Domain” page. Here there will be an option to edit DNS configuration:
After clicking the “EDIT” button you will be taken to a screen that shows you your current DNS settings as well as gives you the option to add custom DNS records. It is important that you delete your current MX records so that your email will work properly:
After choosing to “Add DNS MX Record” you will then be taken to a screen where you can insert the new MX record information:
The information that should be entered in the fields for your MX records should be provided by the company that you are going to be hosting your email with. For example if you are going to be hosting your email with Google they may provide records that look similar to this: @domain.com priority 10 ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM in this case you would leave the name field blank, set the priority to 10 and place the ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM in the data field. Some email hosts have multiple MX records so you may need to add more than one custom MX record.
