Map domain name to web host but keep email at domain host (2 posts)

    Hello all,

    I have a domain name at Go Daddy - wickman-iberia.com (with email hosting) - but want to set up a multisite install at Hostway.

    I have successfully added the site at Hostway:

    http://www.wickman-group.com/iberia/

    I updated the A record on wickman-iberia.com but it doesn't map.

    Go Daddy are telling me that I need to *forward* the wickman-iberia.com domain name to get it to work but if I do, I will lose email hosting at Go Daddy.

    Is there a way to map just the website to another host while retaining email at the domain host?

    Thanks. Hope I made sense.

  2. Yes and no. You want to move the domain to the oath host (park it, as they said) but keep the MX records pointing to godaddy.

    You'll have to extrapolate based one this: http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/add-email/
