Adding your domains to Paced Email requires the addition of two
MX and two
TXT records to your DNS provider. See below for setup instructions.
Custom domains requires a premium account.
|Default||With custom domains|
Where example.com is a domain that you own and have verified with Paced Email.
First, add a custom domain to your Paced Email account via your dashboard. You will then receive two
MX and two
TXT records to add to your DNS provider. All four records are required to successfully verify your domain.
Paced Email aliases use the
paced subdomain so as to not interfere with any existing root domain emails. E.g. firstname.lastname@example.org.
Login to your hosting provider and navigate to the DNS section. This area is called DNS at Cloudflare, but we've seen it called Networking at Digital Ocean and Zone Editor in cPanel.
Next, you need to add the records.
The hostname in this case is paced.yourdomain.com or sometimes just paced. You'll also be asked for priority, which should be 10 for both records.
Again, there are two records to add.
It can take up to 24 hours for DNS changes to propagate across the internet. In our experience, it usually happens faster than that, but don't get discouraged if it doesn't happen immediately.
If you're impatient like us, you can also the Verify DNS settings button on the domain page.
Once fully verified, you can use your personalised Paced Email aliases like usual.
