Dear Sir,

I purchased an domain name with godady, I would like Inmotion to take care of my emails but not the site. How can I do that?

Hello George,

Thanks for the question!

Yes we can definitely do this for you if that is your need. You will need to establish a hosting account here, because you cannot use email services unless you have a hosting account. This will mean that you will need to set the name servers for the domain name so that they point to our hosting servers. Once this is done, you will then be able to make DNS changes to your account using the Advanced DNS editor.

Primarily, you will need to make an A record in order to re-direct all WEBSITE traffic to the server that hosts your website.

You can do this all within the cPanel interface of your hosting account. Remember that both changing the name servers for the domain and any DNS changes that you make to the account (e.g. creating an A record, etc.) may require some propagation time before the changes take place - this change is not instantaneous.

I hope this helps to answer your question! If you have any further questions, please contact technical support available 24 hours a day / 7 days a week.
