Note: This only applies if you have purchased website hosting through us from mywebhostingaccount.com. If you are not sure if you have, please contact us by creating a help ticket here.


You have three options for pointing your domain to the new website hosting


For each option / method, you must first add the domain in your web hosting account cPanel. See the article "Add Domain in cPanel (Addon Domains)".




Option 1. Everything hosted at mywebhostingaccount.com


Change DNS (nameservers) for each domain. Use this option to have everything included at the new website host; website, email, email forwarding, and all Host Records (DNS Zone Files)


DNS (nameservers) to use:

  • ns1.supercp.com

  • ns2.supercp.com

  • ns3.supercp.com

  • ns4.supercp.com


HelpDesk article: How to Change Domain Nameservers (DNS)



Note: When the DNS (nameserver) is changed, the current “Host Records” (DNS Zone Files) will not be copied over automatically. If you have Host Records attached to your domain(s) other than the ones automatically setup for your current hosting (such as additional URL Redirects, TXT Records, outside MX Mail Records), those Host Records (DNS Zone Files) will need to be input in the new website hosting cPanel.


Note: If you have multiple domains you want to change at one time, please see the HelpDesk article: Bulk Edit instructions



 

Option 2. Only website hosted at mywebhostingaccount.com


Keep DNS (nameservers) the same, and change Host Records for each domain to point to the new IP Address. Use this option if you only need the website at the new host, not email. If you use this option and have your domain registration with us also, you can still use our free email forwarding or standalone paid email from your domain account, and you can also manage your Host Records in your domain account like you normally would.


Host Records (A Addresses) to use:


Host NameRecord TypeAddress
@ (none)A (Address)

70.32.23.51

wwwA (Address)

70.32.23.51

ftpA (Address)

70.32.23.51

cpanelA (Address)

70.32.23.51

Note: If you have multiple domains you want to change at one time, please see the HelpDesk article: Bulk Edit instructions




Option 3. Only email hosted at mywebhostingaccount.com


Use only the web hosting's email feature by keeping the DNS (nameservers) the same, and putting in the needed MX record for the web hosting email. The MX Record is the only one needed for the email to work. SPF, DKIM, and DMARC are all additional email security measures (see HelpDesk article: Protect Against Email Spoofing in cPanel (Added Email Security))


Where the domain's DNS (nameservers) are hosted, add these records:


1. MX Record


Type

Host Name

Address / Destination

Preference / Priority

MX
@ (none)

mi3-sr23.supercp.com

0



2. SPF Record


Type

Host Name

Record

Text (TXT)
@ (none)

v=spf1 +a +mx +ip4:70.32.23.51 include:spf.supercp.com ~all



3. DKIM Record


You can obtain the DKIM record when in the mywebhostingaccount.com cPanel "Zone Editor".


Type

Record

Text (TXT)default._domainkey[needs to be obtained from your mywebhostingaccount.com cPanel "Zone Editor"]



4. DMARC Record


First, set up DMARC in the mywebhostingaccount.com cPanel "Zone Editor":

  • in cPanel, type in "Zone" and go to the "Zone Editor"
  • Next to the domain, click "Manage"
  • Click the down arrow next to "Add Record", then click "Add "DMARC" Record"
  • Select the policy (None, Quarantine, or Reject), and click "Optional Parameters" for more DMARC settings. Information about DMARC parameters can be seen in this cPanel Help article: cPanel: Zone Editor.


Second, add this record to where the domain's DNS (nameservers) are hosted:


Type

Host Name

Record


Text (TXT)_dmarc[needs to be obtained from your mywebhostingaccount.com cPanel "Zone Editor"]


HelpDesk article: Add, View, or Edit MX records


Note: In the domain account, "Bulk Edit" is not supported for changing MX records or SPF Records
