Very easy instructions. GoDaddy warns you that changing from their servers you lose their DNS "power" on the internet, but not enough for me to have them host me as I'm a newbie and their web site building tools are way too complex and not very clear what I was buying, anyway. Steve

My company has our domain name registered with GoDaddy, and we used that custom domain to set up email in Microsoft Office 365. We have chosen WebHostingHub as our website host. Now I would like to edit the GoDaddy DNS records so that our domain name (www.4dtechsolutions.com) directs traffic to the site hosted with WebHostingHub, without losing the email accounts that we have already set up in 365. Any advice?

Hello SWalkup, and thanks for your comment,

If you have 3rd party email services setup with Microsoft Office 365 that you would like to retain for your domain name, you'd simply want to modify your MX Mail eXchange DNS records to reflect that service.

Taking a look at the official documentation for creating Office 365 DNS records, it looks like you might need to create MX, CNAME, and TXT DNS records on your account.

You can setup third party MX records in cPanel under the Mail section by clicking on MX Entry.

You can also use the Advanced DNS Zone Editor to create the necessary CNAME, and TXT records as well.

Taking a look at your domain's current DNS settings which you'll want to replicate on our servers, it looks like the MX record you'll want to create would be:
4dtechsolutions-com.mail.protection.outlook.com..

It looks like you have two TXT records:

"v=spf1 include:spf.protection.outlook.com -all"
"v=verifydomain MS=1554173"

For the CNAME record, according to the Outlook article you'd want to "Copy the values from the CNAME row in the Exchange Online section of the Office 365 Add DNS records page into the empty record."

Once you've got all that setup on our server, you could then go ahead and update your domain to point to our name servers. Since our name servers would then be using the same DNS records you already currently have setup, other than pointing your domain's website to our server, you email services for the domain should continue to function as normal.

Let us know if you had any other questions at all.

Hi Jacob

I think I made the mistake of purchasing the godaddy 365 email account. I just wanted a larger email system than the free godaddy email accounts I had already set up. I handle my own cpanels at another server. It was no problem setting up the free godaddy emails, but the 365 one is another story. For just wanting more mail storage I should have looked to see if they had accounts like I already have that just had more storage, which I had purchased in the past.

I work cpanel but cannot for the life of me figure out the advanced settings and dont understand why I would need to set up advanced settings on a wordpress blog on another server for just an email account. 

I did the MX settings but I am refusing to go another step.  I just wanted a larger email memory with godaddy...should I get my money back? I thought I was just getting a bigger email account, but this is turning my cpanel into something that I don't believe the email has to do with it...right? I mean all my other accounts just depended on my changing the MX settings....why must I do more for the 365 account?

Thanks for any input.

There are indeed a few different DNS changes to make for Office 365. The use these to verify your account as well as other things. If you are having trouble setting up your DNS records, you may always contact technical support with the DNS changes that you need to make and they will be happy to make the changes for you.
