Host only email at dreamhost


#1

Hi,
can I only host email for a subdomain at dreamhost?

DNS for this domain is handled by dreamhost, I want the A (and AAAA) record for this subdomain pointed to another server (I have already done this), but now would like to let dreamhost handle the email.

If I let dreamhost “fully host” this subdomain, I cannot change the A (and AAAA) records for the subdomain afterwards, right?

Thanks

If you want the A/AAAA records to not point to DreamHost, then set the domain to “DNS only” hosting, not fully hosted, and add the DNS records yourself using the DNS editor.

(Or just delete the web hosting option from the domain, rather than switching it to DNS-only — the result is identical.)
