Configure hosting with foreign domain?


I’m setting up hosting with a foreign domain and I have som questions regarding the dns configurations.

My domain is which is registered with a portuguese registrar.

I’ve configuring my hosting to use google apps for email and calendar and a wordpress blog at my domain.

My question is what configuration should I be doing at my registrar:

  • Do I need to setup MX records and A records and evrything else?
  • Or is it enough to simply input just the 3 NS records from DreamHost?


Just the WHOIS record. You need to tell your registrar to use the DreamHost name servers:

If they don’t allow you to use someone else’s name servers, then you need all the DNS entries from your DNS link in Manage Domains here.
