Have Hawkhost, Who Should Host DNS- Using Google Apps

Nov 9, 2008

I currently got signed up with Hawkhost and I love the interface so far. I bought all my domain names through Name Cheap. I wanted to see what you guys thought would be the best set up...

I would like to use Google Apps to host my email and not hawkhost.

I have two options: I can have hawkhost host my DNS or NameCheap. Do you guys think it would be better to let Namecheap host my DNS and just point the www record to my website?

Just curious what your guys were on letting the webhost host the DNS and if there were any cons with that.

I'm sure hawkhost is reliable, but I just don't like putting all my eggs in one basket and would prefer to have Google host my email...

Google Apps (Standard) And Two Different Domains: How Many Google Accounts Do I Need?

Jun 27, 2009

I hope some of you are using Google Apps and can help me to find an answer to the following question:

I own two different and independent domain names (e.g. domain1.com and domain2.com).
I'd like to use the Google Apps (Standard, free edition) with them to create two different and totally independent mailboxes (e.g. abc@domain1.com and xyz@domain2.com).

But how many Google accounts I need to do this? Can I manage two (or more) independent and fully functional domains using one Google account?

Help section contains descriptions of aliases for multiple domains, which are just pointers or shortcuts, but not a fully functional mailboxes, so this solution isn't something I'm looking for.

Google APPS And MX Settings

Feb 7, 2008

I want to shift my mail to Google Apps (standard version). Currently my DNS is pointed towards 1and1 dedicated servers (having problems with 1and1 mail services). Want to keep hosting with them but change the Email to Google apps.

The Registrar of the domain is Netfirms, Inc.

My current Settings for nameservers in Nefirms CP are:

Google Instructed me to verify first by creating a CNAME, which I did in Netfirms control panel.

'googlexxxxx.mydomain.com' Pointing to 'google.com'


Google gave me the MX records to enter in the Netfirms panel.



It's been more than 24 hours, neither MX updated not that CNAME lookup 'googlexxxxx.mydomain.com is propogating.

What I am supposed to do here? I am waiting here for last 24 hours. I think that I have to set up these settings with my registrar (Netfirms) rather than it has to do something with 1and1?

Any suggestions?

Google Apps / Email

Mar 21, 2008

attending to clients and their email inbox limits is occuring more frequently
i'd prefer to minimize this chore, especially now i have some clients using IMAP it means the server fills up rapidly.

google apps -just for handling email- seems attractive (6GB free) compared to increasing the monthly fee for extra server space which seems to be kind of expensive at my webhost.

i would actually prefer to keep using the Webmail interfaces offered on the servers but i dont think my clients will change their bad habits of filling up their inbox, and lets not forget the increasing levels of SPAM.

what are other people doing with email?

are many people outsourcing it to google?

i'd appreciate any other ideas or suggestions.

Google Apps :: Need SMTP On My Server?

Google Apps Administration And Integration

Nov 3, 2008

Our company uses Google Apps for Domain (and we are very satisfied with it). Until recently, we were accessing our email via[url], but we then realized that it can be accessible via [url]by updating CNAME and MX records for our DNS zone. We have full access to WHM and cPanel.

However, what we are trying to accomplish, if possible, that, when someone types [url], it does NOT redirect him/her to [url], but it remains on that very domain. For example, the address for GMail inbox in that case would be [url]

Google Apps, Email Login

Aug 31, 2008

I have a question regarding Google Apps when it comes to my email login. (Have searched extensively on Google App's support, but to no avail)

I have created the email address kim @ kimstewart.ca through Google Apps and have set my MX records through HostGator. Propagation looks to now be complete and my emails are sending and I am able to receive. However, when I access my emails through the Google Apps dashboard, it takes me to this rather long and convoluted URL:


I was hoping to just be able to log into www.gmail.com and enter my email/password to be able to login. It this not possible? Or do I need to do some more tinkering from Google Apps in order to make this work? (I also have an iGoogle account I would like transfered over to my Google Apps email.)

Google Apps And Limits With Email Marketing

Jun 3, 2009

Not sure if it's the best forum to ask this, but it's related to hosting.

I have a Windows hosting for our business and send a newsletter twice a week to almost 10,000 subscribers through the hosting mail server.

I'd like to move to google apps so we can use the gmail interface. The problem is that I see Google apps has some limitations for sending mails (500 per user per day if I understood right, no matter if it's free or premier account).

Does anyone send a newsletter through Google apps? What can I do?

Cpanel Catching Email Instead Of Google Apps

Apr 2, 2009

This is very perplexing, a few days ago our WHMCS stopped sending email to our google apps account. I soon found out that the server WHMCS is hosted on, that Cpanel is catching all email.

However, we have the DNS set @ everydns.com including a SPF+MX records which worked before on our DirectAdmin server; Our email use to go fine to google apps however it seems like Cpanel is somehow acting as the MX server?

How To Configure Google Apps For Sending And Recieving Emails?

Jun 15, 2008

I have been using google apps for my domain. However if I send a mail through my server using php mail() function. It doesn't show up in the google apps account sent mail folder.

Further, if I CC or BCC the mail to my google apps email id, it turns up in the inbox (which is fine). Also at times I have noticed if my user tries to reply back to the send mail, instead of it coming in the google apps account, it turns up internally in the postfix interface on webmin.

How can I configure gooogle apps so that it can take full control of my domain mails, including sending recieveing thrash etc etc.

I already have google MX enteries in my Godaddy account.

E-mail Hosting, Google Apps And Domain Locking

May 26, 2008

I've seen that a similar topic was posted earlier today, but I have more specific question. I'm looking for the e-mail only hosting. Requirements:

* dedicated IP
* up to 10 e-mail addresses from various domains
* forwarders (10 or more)
* 1-5 GB storage
* 10 GB bandwidth
* budget: the less the better, but I'll pay any reasonable amount of money if the service is good. Basically I need to find a provider at which I can keep my e-mail address once and for all. (I need a few e-mails only, a few forwarders, 100 MB storage and 1 GB bandwidth but I stated more so I don't run out on resources)

Is there any significant difference between SSL and TLS or is it all mainly in the proprietary vs open standard?

Is there any good reason why not to use Google Apps for this purpose? I've read that some people are concerned about privacy. Is there any pro that can comment on this (privacy issue) and remain objective?

One last (dumb?) question. What is the purpose of domain locking? Before AuthCodes were introduced I could see the reason for locking domains, but why would anyone want to lock the domain these days? (and yet I see majority still does) I mean, noone can initiate the transfer without providing AuthCode (can he?) and isn't that alone good enough to keep the domain safe? And if someone manages to gain control to the control panel to read AuthCode then he can easily unlock the domain so I see no additional layer of security.

Sending Mail From Server, While Mx Record Lives @ Google Apps

Jul 10, 2008

Scenario: I have a website, www.site.com, hosted on an ensim 4 box. The MX records for that zone point to google apps for mail services. Some of the alerting tools my client use are too stupid and don't support SSL or TLS, so they don't work with the pop/smtp services google apps uses.

Can I setup this ensim box to utilize it's smtp server to send mail as user@site.com even though the mail is hosted by google apps?

I guess it's kinda like e-mail spoofing.

Plesk 11.x / Windows :: How To Setup Server For Google Apps (Email)

Apr 17, 2014

I want to use Gmail to host my email. I have already confirmed my domain and now I can successfully send emails via my domain.

However in order to receive emails I need to add/update the MX records on my server. I did that (I think) but now, 24h later, the records don't seem to be updated yet.

For instance intodns.com still shows that there is only one MX record: [URL] ....

This is my setup where you can clearly see the MX records required by Google:

I changed the TTL to some minutes but still the changes don't seem to be propagated.

The screenshots are taken from "Website & Domains" -> my domain -> DNS - that should be the right thing to change, correct?

Hawkhost = Great Host

Sep 28, 2009

I've been hosted on Hawkhost since last year (exactly as it will be expiring on October) and they have been great. I don't regularly check my own website but everytime I do, it's up and running. They were so good I never even had to contact them (only in the beginning because of site transfer). I even forgot what I was hosted on because the whole year just went by so smoothly.

1 Website, 2 Host Reviews! HawkHost And IGXHost

Oct 23, 2009

Didn't think this would be possible, did you?

So, I switched off of one of my providers for my website about a month and a half ago (I won't mention their name). From my previous host I switched to HawkHost.

HawkHost was amazing throughout our entire month and a half stay. When we first went to them, they converted one of our domains into a subdomain and transferred all of the files for us and did a tremendous amount of extra work they didn't have to do. They were quick at responding and their servers were blazing fast. Unfortunately, they had to pack up our stuff for us and we had to leave due to a DDoS attack. But they didn't kick us out before trying some measures first to help prevent the DDoS attack. During the attack, my website still remained online and a lot of the traffic was being thrown out by the security measures they put in place for me for free. But the attack got through those security measures after 24 hours and took down their servers. Even after we left, the IP was still getting hit and they had to null-route the IP address. We do thank HawkHost for attempting to stop it, and we do not hold any grudges, infact we're very thankful they did what they did for us!

Overall Experience with HawkHost.com:
Support : 10/10
Network Speed : 10/10
Uptime (for the month and a half we were there : 10/10
Willingness to help : 10/10

Now! After HawkHost confirmed the attack has stopped, we set our website at a different host. I hope it doesn't get attacked again, because switching hosts isn't the top item on my Fun things to do this Friday. We switched to IGXHost.com

Our current experience (only been 24 hours):
Great support, we ordered in the middle of the night and they transferred our account within an hour! (It's not a small account either). The staff was very helpful and quick to respond which is amazing because it was 1AM. (HawkHost answered in the middle of the night too). Not really sure about anything else except their support, I will update you guys! But so far IGXHost and HawkHost are about the same quality in support (exceptional!).

Anyways! I'll keep you guys updated.

We here at Data Host Direct would like to thank the staff at IGXHost and HawkHost.

Need A UK Web Host That Google Recognises As Such

Apr 15, 2005

Need a UK web host that uses UK IP numbers that Google recognises as such, for my .com domain name.

How to tell?

Pick one of your most popular .com sites on the IP range you give new customers, copy a line of unique text from it, or popular keyword they rank for.

Enter it into Google.co.uk. See where their site comes up. Then tick the 'pages from the UK' option. Is it higher in the SERPs, or gone? Try the same thing with Yahoo.

If higher (i.e. Google thinks the .com (or .net) is hosted in the UK) I also need:

- SSH access
- Cpanel
- 10 MySQL databases
- PhpMyAdmin
- Linux/Unix variant
- SpamAssassin
- 8-10 GB bandwith pm
- 500mb disk space.

And how much per month?
