FAQCan I have my e-mail with one supplier (ISP) and my web site with another?

 

This a little tricky and its depends upon your ISP. Your domain name information is 'delegated' to an 'authoritative' DNS. This DNS contains pointers (DNS A records for your web site and MX records for your Mail service) if your web and e-mail are with different suppliers then one of them must have the 'authoritative' DNS and must be prepared to add a record pointing to another ISPs site. Not all ISPs will do this (remember the DNS gets traffic - resolution requests - which someone has to pay for).
