This question already has an answer here:
I have a DNS + Mail service with hosting company HostA for a domain
mydomain.com and would like to use the servers of FreeDNS as nameservers so that they will resolve web requests to my home server's dynamic IP.
At the same time however I don't want to host myself the email but use the mail servers at hosting company HostA, so I can download my
I thought this was a simple matter of adding a nameserver record which pointed to FreeDNS and a MX record which pointed to hosting company HostA domain.
However they tell me either I use their nameservers for both web and email or I must use FreeDNS nameservers and I cannot edit the MX record anymore but have to deal with it at FreeDNS website.
Is it true? can you explain me why?
