Setting up the domain

Now the product has been ordered and setup, we need to link it up with our domain name. This is done by updating the domains DNS settings. The MX (mail exchange) records direct emails to your new email service. The Sender Policy Framework (SPF) record is an email authentication protocol that domain owners use to specify the email servers they send email from, making it harder for fraudsters to spoof sender information.

If you are using the purely.domains nameservers

If your domain is already making us of the purely.domains nameservers, a.pipe.co & b.pipe.co we can easily assign a premade OxApp DNS set to our domain.

To assign these MX records, head over to the DNS management section of the control panel, find the domain you wish to add the records to.

mx001.cloudus.rs.oxcs.net (priority 10) 
mx002.cloudus.rs.oxcs.net (priority 10)
mx003.cloudus.rs.oxcs.net (priority 10) 
mx004.cloudus.rs.oxcs.net (priority 10)

Its recommended to manually add your SPF records. The following needs to be added as a TXT record:

"v=spf1 include:spf.cloudus.rs.oxcs.net ~all"

If you are using external nameservers

If your domains making use of external nameservers you will need to manually add the MX and SPF records. These are:

MX Records:

mx001.cloudus.rs.oxcs.net (priority 10)
mx002.cloudus.rs.oxcs.net (priority 10)
mx003.cloudus.rs.oxcs.net (priority 10)
mx004.cloudus.rs.oxcs.net (priority 10)

SPF Record:

"v=spf1 include:spf.cloudus.rs.oxcs.net ~all"
