    good morning all,


    my clients have a domain name and they are using 1and1 services:
    1) dns are being managed from 1&1 panel
    2) they are using 1&1 webmail platforms (50/50 outlook vs online webmail platform users)
    3) website is hosted with 1&1 as well


    dns panel:

    I would like to separate emails from the website, where emails would stay with 1&1, but the website would be hosted on my dedicated server.


    could you help me out please with the possible solutions? .. I understand that I have to play with mx or A records, but in this field I'm clueless.


    I had a suggestion to change A record at 1&1 so the domain goes to my server ip, but it just doesn't provide results.


    screenshot (37.220.34.35 is my 1st IP)

    ...


    and now the results are:

    .. I have this feeling that there just a small thing to be done to get it working :?


    thank you in advance for your time, advice and expertise,
    H


    p.s. hopefully this is the right category to post this question.

    Point A records are the new host.
    Point MX records at the old host.

    Leave the NS records as it is. Point A record to your dedicated server IP.(Make sure port 80 is not blocked on your dedicated server). Leave your mx record as it is.

    What is your name server ? It should be that of 1and1.

    This is a side not but I always suggest Google apps for email for clients. It makes managing emails so much easier...especially if there is no reason they need a private server.

    You can take the email hosting with 1and1 and could move to any other hosting provider for your domain hosting
