If you bought your domain name through HOSTINGER, you need to point your domain name to SMTPServer in a different way before you can send an email. This article is about how to add three new CNAME records, which is what you need to do.

Step 1: Add your Domain to SMTPServer

You need to first add your domain to the SMTPServer portal. Choose the top left option ‘Add Domain’ for this.

1. Add domain from smtpserver dashboard

Step 2: Choose the Number of IP

Choose the number of IPs you want to configure with this domain and choose the Order number (only if you have multiple orders) to continue. 

2. Select number of IPs and order id

Step 3: Copy DNS Records

Now you have three CNAME records that you need to add to your HOSTINGER. Copy these records.

3. Copy the DNS details

Step 4: Go to DNS Management in HOSTINGER

First, you have to log in to your HOSTINGER account. Then you will have the dashboard of HOSTINGER.

Click ‘Domains’ from the top menu.

4. At Hostinger dashboard click on Domains from the top menu

In the ‘My domains’ section click on ‘>’ of the domain where you want to configure.

5. Scroll down to My domains and click on the arrow at the right side of your domain

Step 5: Add Your CNAME Records

You will find there are some already existing records there. If you find those are not important then you can delete them, otherwise, just skip them.

Choose ‘DNS / Nameservers’ from the left menu.

6. Click on DNS and Nameservers option at left panel

Under ‘DNS records’ you will find the existing DNS records which are already being added to this domain.

7. Scroll down to Manage DNS records to add records

Now Add those records which you copied from SMTPServer.

Type: Choose CNAME Record from the dropdown list.

Name: From SMTPServer the Host data will be put here.

Target: From SMTPServer the Value data will be put here.

TTL: 14400.

And then click ‘Add Record’.

8. Adding DNS records as shown in smtpserver

When you add those records, all records will show like this in HOSTINGER.

9. All records are added to Hostinger

Step 6: Verified by SMTPServer

Once you add all CNAME records in HOSTINGER successfully then come back to SMTPServer and choose the Domain option. Previously it was ‘Pending’ status. But once you add the DNS records now it will become Active (if not then please wait for 5 min to verify DNS records). Now you are ready to send mail.

10. Domain is active at the smtpserver domain section
