Domain name redirection MX entries help required





akshar
Kindly provide me s step by step help

I have bought a domain name from sify.in : akshar.co.in
sify.in provides following facilities to me:

URL forwarding
change name server (both primary and secondary)
change MX record where it asks for host name, IP and preferences two each
Change A record

Now I have following frihost account details

my frihost site is akshar[dot]frihost[dot]net

Besides I am also on Google Apps with domain akshar.co.in

I need to achieve following things
1. www.akshar.co.in and akshar.co.in should lead the user to my site at akshar.frihost.net
2. any mails like akshar@akshar.co.in should go to my gmail Apps id
3. blog.akshar.co.in should lead to blog.akshar.frihost.net


I am using Cpanel

Frihost admins may post elaborate tutorial on the subject since there are many users having problems like me.

I made a post some time ago covering this: http://www.frihost.com/forums/vt-54628.html#455129

Hope the above helps.
akshar
yes i came across ur post and realised that such a thing can be done.

I am facing a more critical problem

akshar.co.in redirects me to the page http://akshar.frihost.net/
but akshar.co.in/googlehostedservice.html

hence I can not authenticate myself with google apps.

You have set the domain up to redirect to your Frihost account. You need to change your DNS settings as described in the post I referred to which will remove the redirect settings. You may need to wait for up to 24 hours for these changes to be applied.

You will also need to add a new domain under cPanel and name it akshar.co.in for the domain to be fully integrated, then you will need to transfer any files etc across from your existing akshar.frihost.net domain to your new akshar.co.in domain.

I hope this is some help to you.

Glad to hear that.

You can't use Google Apps with a frih.net domain because we do not allow you to change the MX record settings for security reasons. You can use Google Apps with any domain that you host with Frihost though.
