Setting up Google EMail to work with EPhost.

If you are using the Google Email service with your own domain name there are a few things you need to do to make it work at EPhost.
We are NOT referring to using a general account, but for a Google Business Account (G Suite).   You have TWO Options


OPTION #1 (EPHost assisted)

We are more than happy to help set up your Google Business (G Suite) email, please follow the directions below.

  1. Download all of your email at EPhost. To use Google Mail we will need to take you out of our mail server which will consequently delete your email. Please make sure you have a copy of your email before moving to step two. We probably won't be able to restore your email if a mistake is made.
  2. Send an email to with the Google Mail settings you were given, and confirming that you have a copy of all of your email. We suggest emailing from a domain that is not associated with your domain name.
  3. We will setup your MX record changes and reply.


OPTION #2 (Self Administered)

Otherwise, please use the DNS Manager in your control panel to add the necessary MX settings provided by Google's Business Acccount 'G Suite' Administration Page.

A Video Walk Thru is provided on this Google Administration Page.
