How do i connect my domain to Google Apps Email

Before connecting your domain to your Google Apps Email account you will need to determine if your domain name is parked or hosted. If your domain name is parked you will need to make the changes in your Domain Control panel – if your nameservers are NOT set to ns.microlite1.com and ns2.microlite1.com and you have hosting with us you will need to make the changes inside your Plesk control panel. If you have lost your Domain / Plesk control panel login details please go to Forgotten password to retrieve all of your login details by email.

To make DNS changes inside your Domain control panel select the domain and go to DNS Manager, please be sure to delete any existing MX records before adding the new ones. When adding the Google MX records please set the hostname for each MX record to @

To make DNS changes inside your Plesk control panel, select the domain and go to DNS Settings, please ensure that you delete any existing MX records before adding the Google MX records. When adding the records please leave the ‘mail domain’ field blank.

You are now ready to add the following MX records:

ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM. 1

ALT1.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM. 5

ALT2.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM. 5

ASPMX2.GOOGLEMAIL.COM. 10

ASPMX3.GOOGLEMAIL.COM. 10

The records are listed in priority order (smallest priority value 1 = highest priority), if you cannot add the priority values listed then you will need to add the records in the listed order.

If you experience any problems please submit a ticket to our Help Desk.
