If you would like to apply our Email Hosting service to your domain name but you currently have a website hosted elsewhere you must change your DNS to reflect our Nameservers. It is possible to use our Email Hosting service while maintaining your web-hosting services with your third party company simply by pointing your domain to them via their Address (A) Records.
|Note: Any changes that you make to your advanced DNS settings can interrupt your service. If you are not an advanced user, we strongly recommend that you do not change these settings until you contact our support department.|
Before you begin, please ensure that you have the Address (A) Records and/or CNAME Records from your third party hosting provider. These records can be obtained from your current web host or through free, third party lookup tools like UltraTools DNS Lookup.
Once you’ve added your Email Hosting, please perform the following steps to point your nameservers to your web host.
Login to your Rebel account and click Domain Manager.
Click directly on the domain name to access the edit page.
On the domain editing page, select the DNS tab.
Scroll down to Manage Advanced DNS Records and click on the link in this section Advanced DNS Records.
In the Advanced DNS, there are two A Records you should edit:
Click the Edit button update the Points To field, as instructed by your hosting service provider.
You can leave the TTL as it is. Click the green button to Save. For assistance with adding your new email address to devices, please use our Email Setup Assistant here
