How to change Google Apps DNS (tutorial)

Loading ... Loading ...

This is a basic tutorial on how to set up Google Apps DNS records:

1) go to http://support.google.com/a/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=33915 and take note of the Google Apps DNS records – keep this page open for your reference
2) go to your cPanel, then scroll down to the Domains section, and click on DNS Zone Editor
3) Select your domain (if you have multiple domains there will be a dropdown menu, if you have one domain you won’t have to select one)
4) scroll down to the “MX” section. There should be one already there
host record: @
priority: 0
points to: mail.yourdomain.com

Edit the existing record, or delete it, it doesn’t matter. You will need to use the form at the top of the page to create new DNS records.
Your records should look like this when you’re done:

Record Type: MX
Host Record(s): @
Priority / Points to:
1 – aspmx.l.google.com
5 – alt1.aspmx.l.google.com
5 – alt2.aspmx.l.google.com
10 – aspmx2.googlemail.com
10 – aspmx3.googlemail.com

Wait 12-36 hours for DNS propagation to kick in.
