Configuring DNS at your own provider

Customer Support -

Configuring your Domain:

If you select the option that says you already own your own domain, then you need to set up your own DNS at the registrar where you purchased the domain.

After logging into your account at that registrar, you'll need to setup two A records: one that points to your main domain (e.g. mylawfirmwebsite.com) and a second A record that points to the subdomain (e.g. www​.mylawfirmwebsite.com).

www​.mylawfirmwebsite.com     96.126.121.9
mylawfirmwebsite.com     96.126.121.9

 

Configuring your Email:

If you plan to use our email service you'll need to setup the following three additional DNS records:

MX records:
mylawfirmwebsite.com - Priority 10 - mx1.emailsrvr.com
mylawfirmwebsite.com - Priority 20 - mx2.emailsrvr.com

TXT 'SPF' Record:
v=spf1 ip4:96.126.121.9 include:emailsrvr.com ~all
