Looking to manually configure your domain's DNS for Uni Email?  Great! Just follow the instructions below when creating a new Uni Email account.

If you don't already own a domain to use with Uni Email click here for instructions on setting up Uni Email with a new domain. 

If your existing domain is configured using external name servers you can still set up Uni Email.

  • The instructions below apply to domains which are not using Uniregistry name servers. During setup, you will be asked to either allow us to automatically update them or you will be presented with the DNS records to manually configure the domain for Uni Email.  Changing name servers will affect existing DNS.

When a domain is using nameservers outside of Uniregistry you will see a notice requesting confirmation to either change the nameservers automatically or be presented with the DNS records needed to configure the domain manually at your DNS host. Changing name servers will affect existing DNS.  So, if you're using external name servers for a website or other service associated with your domain name, click 'Show Me The Manual Settings' and create the DNS records exactly as they appear at your current web host portal. Your new email address won't work until you do this.

Tap 'Change' to select a different payment or contact profile.

          *Tap '+' to create a new profile

Tap the toggle to accept the Uniregistry Terms of Service

Tap 'Complete Order' if everything is correct.

          *Tap 'Back' to go back and make a change.
