Hi,

I want to change name server of my domain to my host provider and also use MX to use email with another service like Zoho but when i want to add MX record or CNAME record i have to change NS to Godaddy default NS and it will discount the domain to my host, 

Can anyone help me with this,

Thank,s

Hi @amoredance and @sulphur1010

Check out these instructions on how to delete a DNS record. You can also change an MX record without having to remove the existing one.

Greetings @hanif and welcome. It sounds like you are setting custom nameservers (third party) so you need to be sure you elect this option or it will keep you in the GoDaddy DNS "family". Check out this link for info on how to elect and set this up:

I also have the same problem. The custom nameservers are set. The question is how do I now add MX records to point the mail to zoho.com?

Hello @cr14052!

 

Thank you for posting! You would update your MX records wherever your hosting is. When you point your domain with nameservers, the DNS is managed wherever you're pointing to.
