Hi there! We are having a problem with the DNS settings with a client. Currently, their old website is hosted on a local server and the DNS records are in cPanel. The new Webflow website is working when I replace the old A records from the local website with the ones from Webflow.
The problem is that they are also running a domain email with cPanel on the server, and it seems that when I delete the A records for the old locally-hosted website, the emails stop working. I do not know what to do. For now I have done the following:
- Replaced the old A @ record with the new ones provided from Webflow;
- Deleted the localhost.website.com. record that pointed to 127.0.0.1
- Changed the CNAME record with www.website.com. from pointing to @ to pointing to proxy-ssl.webflow.com
- Added the TXT @ record that points to proxy-ssl.webflow.com; but also left a @ TXT record that for something along the lines “v=spf1 +a +mx +ip4” with about 3 +ip4 adresses (one of which is the address for the old A record for the last website)
I do not know what to change to keep the email working in cPanel, but run the website from Webflow with the new A DNS records. Thank you, any help will be greatly appreciated!
