Hi Elyzabeth, I have the same issue. My domain is registered with homestead, however I created a new site that is being hosted by godaddy. Godaddy reps advised me to update A records, Cname and Name servers, but now my incoming emails (still maintained with homestead) are not coming through.  Additionally, the Cname was originally pointing to another webhosting site imcreator, i have since deleted the site but when I type the naked domain without www, i get my site, when we type www, we get an invalid url, still trying to point to the old website. I am now unable to edit any dns settings in homestead, error message says that as nameservers were changed, i'm no longer allowed. Please advise.

Note: This conversation was created from a reply on: I created a website then added a domain, having problems. How do I disassociate ....

Hello,


When you changed your nameservers, it would have stopped telling the domain where to get the email from. You either need to point the domain back to Homestead nameservers and just point to GoDaddy via A records/CNAME or you need to add 11 records into GoDaddy to point the domain back to our email.


If you are going to add the email records to GoDaddy, this is what you need to input:

               A RECORDS

Host         yourdomain           Points to

mx            yourdomain             66.96.142.50
mx            yourdomain             66.96.142.51
mx            yourdomain             66.96.142.52
pop           yourdomain             66.96.135.134
imap         yourdomain             66.96.135.134
smtp         yourdomain             66.96.135.134
mail          yourdomain             66.96.135.134
webmail    yourdomain            66.96.135.48
email        yourdomain             66.96.135.48


               MX RECORDS
Host Type          Points to                     Priority

@                       mx.yourdomain            10 

              TXT Record

Host Type    Value

@                 v=spf1 ip4:38.113.1.0/24 ip4:38.113.20.0/24 ip4:65.254.224.0/19 ?all

All of those records I posted are specifically for email and they are all mandatory.
