Can I connect to my Email Hosting with an IP address via an A record?
Yes, you can connect to your Email Hosting account via an A Record; however this is not recommended as we cannot guarantee that the IP address will always remain the same. If you use the "Dynadot Hosting" setting, our system automatically updates any IP changes, but we are unable to do this for those with a custom DNS configuration, so the update would need to be done manually from within your account following these same instructions below.
The current IP address used by our Email Hosting is 188.8.131.52
For your email to work, please include the MX record webhost.dynadot.com
Your settings should look similar to what is shown below: (click on it to see it larger)
Please be aware it may take anywhere from 20 minutes to 24 hours for your DNS changes to propagate.
