DYNADOT HELP

How do I connect my domain to both my Website Builder and Email Hosting?


If you’d like to use your Website Builder to host your website, and your Email Hosting service for email only, you can use our free DNS service to connect your domain to both services simultaneously. To set this up, please follow these steps:

  1. Sign in to your Dynadot account.
  2. Select "My Domains” from the left-side menu bar and click "Manage Domains" in the drop-down menu.
  3. Check the box next to your domain name(s) and click on the "Bulk Action" button.
  4. Choose "DNS Settings" from the "Bulk Action" list.
  5. On the DNS Settings page, select "Dynadot DNS" from the top drop-down menu.
  6. In the "Domain Record (required)" section, select "A" from the drop-down menu and then enter “52.52.194.179” in the "IP Address or Target Host" box.
  7. For the next line of the "Domain Record (required)" section, select "A" from the drop-down menu and then enter “52.52.155.86” in the "IP Address or Target Host" box.
  8. For the next line of the "Domain Record (required)" section, select “MX” from the drop-down menu and then enter "webhost.dynadot.com" in the "Mail Host" box. Set the "Distance" to "0", the highest priority.
  9. For the next line of the "Domain Record (required)" section, select “TXT” from the drop-down menu and then enter "v=spf1 mx ip4:166.88.19.160 ~all" in the "IP Address or Target Host" box.
  10. In the "Subdomain Records (optional)" section, enter "www" as the subdomain, select "A" from the drop-down menu and then enter “13.56.50.119” in the "IP Address or Target Host" box.
  11. Press the "Save DNS" button to save your changes.

NOTE: To connect a domain to your Website Builder, the domain must be in the same Dynadot account as the Website Builder you want to connect to it.

Your domain must be linked directly to your Website Builder before you can connect to the Website builder using DNS. Please be aware that it may take some time for your settings to propagate.

The SPF record will help prevent spoofing and let email servers know your message is not spam.
