Mailboxes with Pair Networks

If you need mailboxes for your domain, they can be set up through a web hosting account from Pair Networks, Inc. The e-mail can be hosted at Pair Networks and the website can be hosted elsewhere.

Pointing E-mail to Pair Networks

You can point e-mail to your Pair Networks web hosting account by setting some DNS records. Before making any changes, make sure that you have the MX record for the domain. Please contact us if you need help finding the record.

When you have the record, you can follow these steps to add it to your domain:

  1. Log into the Domain Name Management System
  2. Click the domain to update
  3. Click Domain Address Settings
  4. If Custom DNS is already on for your domain, you can skip this step.
    If you are turning on Custom DNS, read the warning, read it, agree to the terms of service, and click Enable
  5. Select MX from the Add New Record menu, enter this information, and click Add Record
