You must select your domain during registration, and domains cannot be changed once registration is complete.
You will still receive mail sent to existing addresses at your subdomain (whether approved or pending), but you will not be able to create any new ones. All new addresses will need to use your new registered domain.
You will own your domain as long as you are a current Premium user with Mailshell. The name you provide with your credit card will be listed publicly in the WHOIS database as the organization registrant; to protect your privacy, Mailshell's address will be given. Mailshell will be listed as the administrative, technical, and billing contacts.
Unfortunately, to keep prices low, Mailshell currently cannot offer web hosting services. If you wish to have a website associated with your domain, you can use the Manage Your Domain Address feature: this allows you to either forward your domain to an existing website or specify the IP address where your website resides.
You do have the option of transferring a domain you have registered through Mailshell as long as you are a current Premium user, although there will be a $20 processing fee. To do so, contact the new registrar you wish to use and have them request the transfer, then notify Mailshell Support that you will be transferring your domain to this registrar.
Premium domains can take up to 48 hours to register before they are ready to use. You will receive a confirmation email when your Premium domain is ready.
If you own a .com, .net., or .org domain name and would like to have Mailshell protect your email, there are two ways to do so:
Mailshell currently supports only .com, .net, and .org domain suffixes.
Due to additional costs and resources associated with other domain suffixes (.biz, .name, etc.), Mailshell is not planning on offering those in the near future.
DNS MX (Domain Name Service Mail eXchanger) refers to a domain name's mail server information. The MX record provides information about which servers handle the domain name's email storage, distribution, or redirection.
MX records contain the mail server name(s) and the priority setting assigned to each. For example:
MX Record: joe.com MX 10 mail.server.net
This MX record assigns mail.server.net a priority of 10 as the mail server handling email for joe.com. The priority number controls which mail servers are used first; values range from 0-99, with lower numbers corresponding to higher priority. The mail server with the highest priority is typically used for delivery of all email for the domain name, but if this primary server is unavailable, the server with the next highest priority will be used instead. (If an MX record contains two servers with the same priority number, both will have equal responsibility for email.)
If you would like Mailshell to handle email for your domain without transferring it entirely, you need to update your MX record with the following information:
Please do not set the priority preference for either server to zero, and do not include any additional MX servers beyond those listed above; if you do, email may be delayed or lost.
If you do not have direct control over your DNS, please contact the DNS provider that currently handles email for your domain name for assistance in updating the MX records.
Using Mailshell to handle email for your domain costs $24.95 a year and includes our Premium Service.
Please note: This is not a registrar transfer. You will still be responsible for all ongoing domain name registration and renewal fees to your current registrar.
Mailshell does not provide refunds for Premium accounts.
Prices can change at any time. Your price will be locked in for whatever term you have paid for and can be extended at any time at the most current rates.
