Third Party Email Provider

Hi guys.
I am very appreciate with this free services for shared hosting.
But there is limitation for email service, then I think that to use third party email provider (mailgun) to see if its working.
After I create an account to these site and add the several config for CNAME, MX, SPF record via vistaPanel, I have trouble to add ._domainkey.mydomain.com to the SPF record.

Does anyone have an idea for this email service issue?
Thanks before.
Im still struggling for this.

  • Hello
    Your account has vistapanel??

    Have your tried the "dot" at the end of the domainkey??

    I don't think it will work with the free service.

    cPanel mx entry "mx.unaux.com" required to receive email. MX entry mx.byetcluster.com "hardcoded".

    "Records can not be altered on subdomains"

  • Hi @badbot. Thanks for your reply. After I tried your suggestion to add 'dot' at the end of the domainkey (without mydomain.com), it still not take an effect. I get the same error message like this "Illegal characters in hostname part 4 (k1._domainkey.). Syntax Error in domain name.".
    What does the error mean? I assuming that the 4 char "underscore" is not allowed by the system

    But after I tried to insert with the different hostname e.g "@". It also throw me to same error message like above

    Edit:
    When I tried insert it with "K1._domainkey.mydomain.com." (I insert dot in the end of the domain name) as hostname, it successfully added the record but the hostname changed to .ezyro.com.
    Does it not matter?

    The only problem is to add "K1._domainkay." to SPF, even successfully added it always changed to .ezyro.com. So the mailgun server wouldn't recognized the configured hostname
    Any idea for this issue?

  • hello
    I gave up, even after waiting for propagation I started receiving a bounced email from ifastnet, in the inbox of email sent to address.

    Even using the email with mx default records. It takes 24+ hours before email reaches destination inbox. Receiving can be very delayed also.

    In my opinion the profreehost service is for hosting webpages. A good starter for new users. If you want the benefits of of a full blown shared web hosting package, there is always premium services. You can find the link in cPanel.

  • Hi. So you mean I can not configure the DKIM record? my last step is to add DKIM TXT record. the all configuration setup properly except that one.

  • hello
    I hope you have better luck with it then I did. But the mx record "mx.byetcluster.com" can not be removed. So as far as I see it, you will always have to go threw freemail.byetcluster first.

    But keep trying maybe it will work for you on the vistapanel.

  • It still not working because I need to setup CNAME, MX, SPF and DKIM config. Thats all was configured properly except DKIM because the DKIM record seem not displayed/not allowed in vistaPanel. Can you make DKIM Record to enable for editing?

    You can transfer your site to CloudFlare to use DKIM records.

    dykisa said that over a year ago and is not here anymore. it is flatbog that bumped this thread. And fatblog is most likely a forum troll.

    but thanks cloudflare is a very useful tool for forum trolls.

  • I hadn't noticed, I was too tired.

    Yeah anyway, you can use both to setup MX Records.

    I didn't quite get that. How is it useful for forum trolls specifically?

    What is the difference between being useful for normal users and for forum trolls?

    That is sarcasm! User bumps thread a year old and asked "how to add mx record". If they are unfamiliar with adding mx records, cloud flare will be a real treat!

    I also said "may" be a forum troll. In other words, I am waiting for reply (post domain so we can check if he is using PFH services) before effort to support. Is the poster really looking for help?? Or just trolling to spam??

    As moderators we moderate the forum and offer community support, no access to users PFH/accounts.
