Free Blog on Your Own Domain with Free Email Hosting Part 3

In part 1 I wrote about how to set dns at domain registrar and register for account in mydomain.com

In part 2 I wrote about pointing blogspot with my domain.

In this part, I’ll describe step taken to make rasyid.info has it’s own email hosted in google apps.

The only requirement to follow this step is have an account in google.

Refer to this post about google account.

Lets begin :-)

1. Signup for google apps

5. Change dns setting in mydomain.com, login and manage service for rasyid.info Click rasyid.info link to get start blog16.PNG

Now, add mx record infomation

Dont forget dot (.) after COM or your email will not work.

Click Update to add, repeat this step for all mx data .

6. All required steps are complete.

Wait for dns change before try to test send email to newly created account (info@rasyid.info).

At next post I’ll write summary and clean up some issue around misconfiguration :-)

Thank you google.
