How to Add DNS Records for Your Custom Email Domain
Log in to your BlueHost hosting account.
From the side navigation menu, click on the Domains tab. Then, click on the Zone Editor option.
Select your desired domain using the dropdown box.
Scroll down to the Add DNS Record section.
In the Host Record field, enter the Host that was generated in the dashboard.
Leave the TTL field as the default option.
Under Type, select CNAME.
In the Points To field, enter the Value that was generated in the dashboard.
If everything appears correct, select “Add Record”. Repeat the process two more times so all three CNAME records have been added.
With this process complete, you can now navigate back to your dashboard and Validate. If the CNAME records were input correctly, you should be all set to continue with your custom branded email domain in the dashboard!
