Google Apps for Work – yes, we love!

Google Apps for Work – yes, we love!

We’ve had solid good experience with Google Apps.

We’ve been using Google Apps for BROEKMAN communications since they launched, and it’s really helped
our team work faster and more efficiently. We think you’ll also benefit from trying it out for your business.
* Fast email. Searchable. Archivable. Uses Gmail interface but is customizable.
* Fast on all devices (iphones, ipads, etc.) if you set-up email as IMAP not POP mail!
* Integrates with all their products

Google Apps is a cloud-based productivity suite that includes Gmail for professional email,
Drive for online storage, Hangouts for video meetings, Calendar for scheduling and Docs
for editing files. We get things done using any device we choose.

I can also send you a coupon that saves you $10 per user for the first year, so just let me know and I’ll provide details.

With Google Apps, I focus less on IT and more on what I love to do. I hope you can benefit as well.
Feel free to get in touch with any questions.

Configuring DNS for your GoDaddy email in cPanel

Big shout out to GoDaddy customer support for constantly empowering clients like me to effectively do our jobs!
After migrating a domain from another Godaddy account, unbeknowst to me we inherited DNS settings for legacy GoDaddy email. Gotta clear the cnames and start adding everything below so it matches this exactly. Figure this, to save $30, 40 or $80 a year on free email with hosting…. you should be willing to take a hit for the team and get someone to manage your DNS!

If your domain isn’t registered in the same account as your hosting or it’s registered elsewhere, use the following DNS records for your cPanel shared hosting account’s Web hosting and email.

NOTE: DNS changes can take up to 48 hours to take effect across the Internet.

Mandatory

Record Type Host Points to
A (Host) @ Your hosting account’s IP address. For more information, see Finding Your Hosting Account’s IP Address.
CNAME www @
CNAME mail @
MX (Mail Exchanger) @ mail.[your domain name], for example mail.coolexample.com

NOTE: Use MX Priority 0

You must delete any other MX (Mail Exchanger) entries in the DNS zone file for your email to work. The MX entry listed above should be the only MX entry.

If you have your cPanel site set up on a subdomain (e.g. cpanel.coolexample.com), replace each instance of “@” with your subdomain and use the domain name including the subdomain in the MX record.

If your domain is registered here, you can make these changes through your domain’s DNS manager. For more information, seeManaging DNS for Your Domain Names.

Optional

You do not need to add all of these records to your zone file, but doing so will make certain functions work, such as Autodiscovery through Outlook.

Record Type Host Points to/Value
A (Host) admin Your hosting account’s IP address. For more information, see Finding Your Hosting Account’s IP Address.
CNAME autoconfig @
CNAME autoconfig.admin @
CNAME autodiscover @
CNAME autodiscover.admin @
CNAME cpanel @
CNAME ftp @
CNAME mail @
CNAME webdisk @
CNAME webdisk.admin @
CNAME webmail @
CNAME whm @
CNAME www.admin @
TXT @ v=spf1 a mx ptr include:secureserver.net ~all
TXT admin v=spf1 a mx ptr include:secureserver.net ~all
Record Type Service Protocol Name Priority Weight Port Target
SRV _autodiscover _tcp @ 0 0 443 cpanelemaildiscovery.cpanel.net
SRV _autodiscover _tcp admin 0 0 443 cpanelemaildiscovery.cpanel.net

You can also remove the following DNS entries:

CNAMEs — email, imap, pop, and smtp
