*  Please note: currently ‘A’ Records and CNAME records (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_DNS_record_types)  are under development (due in the first quarter of 2015).  Configurations requiring A record or CNAME configuration can be fulfilled by using a third party DNS provider such as DNS Made Easy or Route53.

Mail servers configuration

All third party mail server configurations, such as Google Gmail, Yahoo and Zoho etc. currently require mail name server (MX) configurations using a third party DNS provider such as DNS Made Easy, Route 53, etc.  Simply set your name server records in your domain name control panel (see above) to point to your DNS provider and follow their instructions to configure your MX record to point to your email provider.

Netistrar will be announcing services for easy mail server configuration within the domain name control panel early in 2015.
