How to setup email to work with your domain name using a Free ZoHo Account


The definition of a bait and switch company – Although #Ipage offers great rates to start off with, their renewal rates are among the highest in the industry. And just try and get a refund when they take your money! Case in point: My initial website was a great rate of $24. Then the renewal came (without my knowledge, by the way) and it was a whopping $394.20! Seriously? Also, I was extremely limited in my uploads to my website (files always had to be less than 5MB in size). I made due since it was used for a school class. Their billing department was rather rude to deal with when it came time to ask for my money back. All I can say is buyer beware. RLott , North Carolina, netteworkdesigns.com

    Hey! Thank you very much for this. I have been looking for a way to do this. My namecheap dashboard looks completely different though and I can't find where I can edit host records.

    Many thanks for this video, extremely helpful!

    After the mail account is setup, can I delete the verification setting and other one which had the timeout in your video, there was no timeout setting with mine.

    Thanks so much for this video. I did everything in set up….. and I have no notification / action to do list. However I still cant receive email from outside eg sending a test from my gmail account to my @domain… Looks like its sending from my zoho but not receiving. Any suggestions? I have reached out to zoho but not response.

    Thank you SO much for this! Worked great right off the bat (I'm using Google Domains). Your video is very well done, concise and to the point, well-narrated and made this process a whole lot easier for me! So thanks again!

    Having a major brain fart right now. Cannot figure out my domain provider. Tucowsdomains just tells me that it's shopify.
    Lost me at 3:30ish. Thanks a ton for any feedback. It's late. I just want to get this thing off the ground and start making sales lol.
