A records and MX records pointing to different places

I have a domain registered with Go Daddy, I'm trying to use this as the default domain on a site hosted on 1and1. It's currently pointed to a site hosted at marketleader, I would like to continue to use market leaders MX record (or however it is you keep email going to their server). How can I accomplish this?


Re: A records and MX records pointing to different places

Hi @Jeffsims, thanks for posting.

There are 2 ways to do what you described.


1) You can keep your current nameservers and update the A Record DNS setting to point to your new hosting service.

2) You can change your nameservers to the new nameservers, and then update the MX records with your new hosting/dns provider to point back to your email provider.


You'll need to work with your providers to determine which DNS settings to use for the setup you choose to use.
