Host website on another server BUT keep godaddy email server settings
jonb said 2 years, 3 months ago:
Our website is hosted on another server but we’d like to keep all our emails going through godaddy.com (to keep our clients from having to change all they’re email clients).
Reading through the forums, I think I have the correct settings in that I’d change the A record to the website IP but keep the MX records as they are?
Have I got this correct?

Ok, I’ve made the A record change…pointing the host to the new IP (www.crimsoncasual.com -> 22.214.171.124). I realize it will take some time for the DNS to catch up. Is there anything I need to do on the other end?

The site appears to be loading, so you should be all set! Let us know if you have any other questions.

I did this and now the email doesn’t work. Simply changed the A record to an external IP. Thesite resolves no problem, but the MX records both point to the @ host, which is the new IP. This doesn’t make sense to me. Seems the email is being redirected too based on the new @ host record IP. Godaddy shows
MX records show @ host record pointing to mailstore1.secureserver.net and smtp.secureserver.net

This is the correct configuration for MX records. What are the specific issues that you are having with sending or receiving?

I have a domain and email account through godaddy but the site is hosted somewhere else. I recently stopped receiving emails through the godaddy accounts. I understand that the A record needs to be changed, but I’m confused as to where I need to change it. The DNS manager comes up blank on godaddy so i’m not sure where to change any info for my email account.

If your DNS manager comes up blank, this usually means that your domain is either already using your hosting company’s nameservers and would need to update your MX records through them, or if your domain is pointing to our nameservers there could be an issue with the zone file in which we would need you to contact our Support Team.

I am trying to accomplish something similar and I am hung up on it.
I updated my godaddy registered .net domain DNS to another hosting company that uses cpanel.
The pages are loading fine as you can see here
I want to keep the emails routing through Godaddy like they were. I changed the MX in my new hosts cpanel to
smtp.secureserver.net priority set to 0 and mailstore1.secureserver.net priority set to 10
Is this proper? Its been several hours now and mail is still not routing properly.

Hi, I have moved my website to Godaddy. I know I have to change the A record now currently it is pointed to another server. What IP should I point it to now?

did this ever get resolved?

If you are having any issues with your MX records please reply with your domain name for an additional review.
