Configurate email with external domanin provider for free hosting account


I bought my domain wich includes email, from another provider:
I set up the infinityfree DNS in the control panel of my domain provider. Now my email is not working. Looking in the help of my domain provider i found that i have to add the followings records:

Record MX
name: domainname.extension
Type: MX
Priority: 10
Host: mx.domainname.extension

Records A
Host: mx IP:
Host: mx IP:
Host: mx IP:
Host: mx IP:
Host: mx IP:
Host: mx IP:
Host: mx IP:
Host: mx IP:

I don’t find where to add the “A” records so I just added the “mx” record but I’m getting the following error from the server when trying to send email from gmail to my own email:
“DNS Error: DNS type ‘mx’ lookup of responded with code NOERROR DNS type ‘aaaa’ lookup of responded with code NXDOMANIN DNS type ‘a’ lookup of responded with code NXDOMAIN”

Well, your domain can revert to the original nameservers used by your domain registrar.
Then add in the following A record pointing to for base domain and www subdomain


@KangJL So you are saying that instead of using the infinityfree DNS, should I use my domain provider DNS and then add an A record in order to use the infinityfree hosting?

Yes, exactly.

Also, there’s no need to ping specific users, this is a community forum and there are many of us that can respond too.


Sorry, what should be the A record host name?
I have to fill these fields:
Ipv4 address:

You should create two, one with “@“ and one with “www”. The content of both should be the IP address of your account, found in the client area.
