How to purchase an Email Only plan

In order to purchase an Email Only plan, you will first need to log into your MacHighway client area. If you do not know how to do that, you can find a guide here.

None

Once you are logged in, click on Order New Services in the Shortcuts menu on the lower left-hand side of the screen. Or, you can click on Services in the upper menu bar and select Order New Services from the drop down menu.

Now, at the Products page, choose Email Only from the category list and click on the Order Now button for the plan of your choice.

You will now need to enter the domain name you wish to use for this service. You have three options here.

  1. If you would like to register a new domain name, you can enter your preferred domain in the top section and click the Search button. If the domain is available, you will be able to proceed. If not, you will need to select a different domain.
  2. If you have a domain that is currently registered somewhere else, but wish to transfer the domain to us, you can enter it in the second section. This will create an order for the domain transfer as well as the Email Only service. You will need the domain EPP code in order to start the transfer process. You must ensure that your domain is also unlocked and available for transfer.
  3. If you already have a domain registered but do not wish to transfer it to us, or if it is already with us, you will use the third section.

Enter you domain in the correct field for your situation and click on the button to proceed.

On the order summery page, you can review your order. Once you are satisfied with the order, click on the Checkout button to the right to proceed with the order. Choose your payment method, check the boxes once you read the Terms of Service, and click on the Complete Order button.

Once your payment is processed, you can return to your client area to start setting up your new plan right away. However, you will need to update your domain DNS records and allow the records to propagate before your service will function. See below for the required DNS records.

Updating your DNS records

Before you can start receiving mail to your new Email Only Hosting service, you will need to update your domain's DNS mail records. You will need to update these records with whoever is hosting your domain name servers.

If you are using our name servers, check out our guide on updating your DNS records.

If you are using different name servers, you will need to contact them to update your DNS records.

The DNS records required are as follows (replace [domain.com] with your domain name).

Name Type Record
mail.[domain.com] A 66.84.17.22
pop.[domain.com] CNAME mail.[domain.com]
imap.[domain.com] CNAME mail.[domain.com]
smtp.[domain.com] CNAME mail.[domain.com]
webmail.[domain.com] CNAME mail.[domain.com]
