I'm stumped. I'm not so sure what is the answer to that question. I'll do some poking around and get back to you if I discover an decent answer. You should email the people at 123 reg as they probably can help you..

My HostGator is reistered on , I ve set up an account , I would appreciate it if someone could help me on how to verify this , How do I change the cname account at

Comment #4

Not necessarily, he could provide email addresses to site visitors...

Comment #5 offers free dns management..

You can change your cname settings there.Or if your host offers dns management you can use that as well.(Dreamhost)..

Just an additional question about this: does the owner of the HostGator get a special password to an area where you create the email addresses and mailboxes, or is the only password you get the log-in password for the mailbox with your own domain?.

And how does the "domain ownership verification" work?.

I doubt between starting a mailbox with a HostGator I already own, or registering a new one through Gmail directly and use that HostGator for emails...

It's very easy to set up with If I wanted a HostGator just for email, I would consider setting it up with them. They automatically set up a Google based homepage that lets you connect to your email through your homepage. (~$8/year, $6 for the 1st year) Great for novice domainers who just want their own email address and don't want to use a lot of time setting it up...

Is this only a web service or does it have pop3 service as well?..

Comment #9

Ok. Thanks Philip. All I need now is a link to the instructions on how to set this up in your web browser. I couldn't find any...

Comment #10

But if you register through Google directly or if you use an already registered domain... do you get a seperate password for admin area/control panel and for the actual mailbox?.

And how does the "domain ownership verification" work?..
