Here you can find out what to do if your domain is registered with another provider and you only want to use e-mail traffic through Hostpoint:

Changing name server

If you do not require any other services relating to your domain apart from e-mail (e.g. no website), we recommend entering the Hostpoint name servers on your domain with your domain provider.

Modifying DNS Entries

If you operate a website with another provider and only want to use Hostpoint’s e-mail traffic, you need to make changes to the DNS zone.

You can usually find out the DNS zone from your website provider. The following entries must be changed there:

 Domain Type TTL Priority Value
your-domain.chMX 3600 MX 3600 CNAME 300 CNAME 300 TXT 300 -v=spf1
  • The MX entries are there to direct your e-mail traffic to Hostpoint.
  • The CNAME entries ensure that the e-mail program you use to configure the e-mail address automatically finds our server settings.
  • The SPF entry serves to protect your domain from fake senders and phishing abuse.
