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,

    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.

    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.

    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.
