(for customers managing their own domain names)
May 15, 2015
The following information is for customers who bought their domain from someone other than EZ-NetTools. (For example if you bought your domain name at GoDaddy, Network Solutions, etc.). If you are not managing your own DNS you may disregard this message.
Contact your domain host (ie. GoDaddy) to make the following changes prior to May 28th, 2015.
Old IP Address: 188.8.131.52
New IP Address: 184.108.40.206
If you're hosting your website with EZ-NetTools, you need to update any A records that points to our old IP address (220.127.116.11) to 18.104.22.168.
Email UpdatesIf you're hosting your email with us you will need to update your MX records. If the A record for your mail host (typically smtp.<your_domain>) currently points to: 22.214.171.124, 126.96.36.199, or 188.8.131.52 then replace your existing MX records with the following MX records:
If you Use a Email Client like Outlook
If you use POP or IMAP to receive your email and the A record your incoming mail server domain (typically mail.<your_domain>) points to:
- 184.108.40.206, change it to a CNAME record pointing to <your_domain>.imap04.eznettools.net.
- 220.127.116.11, change it to a CNAME record pointing to <your_domain>.imap05.eznettools.net.
If You Use Web Mail
If you use webmail.<your_domain> to receive your email and the A record for webmail.<your_domain> points to:
- 18.104.22.168, 22.214.171.124, or 126.96.36.199, change it to a CNAME record pointing to: <your_domain>.webmail.eznettools.net.
Before the Update the DNS will look something like:
eznettools.com. IN A 188.8.131.52
www.eznettools.com. IN A 184.108.40.206
mail.eznettools.com. IN A 220.127.116.11
webmail.eznettools.com. IN A 18.104.22.168
smtp.eznettools.com. IN A 22.214.171.124
eznettools.com. IN MX 0 smtp.eznettools.com.
After the update it should look something like:
eznettools.com. IN A 126.96.36.199
www.eznettools.com. IN A 188.8.131.52
