GoDaddy Point web traffic to Inmotion VPS while keeping email at Godad

  • Answered
Hi, I need to keep email using a GoDaddy plan, but get all of the webtraffic to point to our VPS. I was reading that I can change the A Record on GoDaddy's system, and that will just change the web traffic to InMotion, but before I do that I want to confirm it with you. Also, do I use the shared IP address that shows up in my InMotion cPanel?

Thanks for the question about the email using Godaddy's server and web traffic using your VPS. That is correct, you can definitely keep email using Godaddy's server. In order to do this, you will have to change the MX record to point to GoDaddy, while using an A record for the domain name to point to the VPS. You will need to make an A record labeled something like and then point your mail IP to that record. The web traffic will be pointed to the VPS using the IP address assigned to the domain name. The IP address should be the one assigned to the domain at the VPS.

I hope that helps to answer your question! If you require further assistance, please let us know!
