I'm not familiar with 1and1 DNS hosting, but if they won't let you create a txt record then you will need to switch your DNS hosting to someone who does. From a quick google it looks like 1and1 won't let you do this* From the horses mouth: As of Aug, 7 2007 - "Yes, we do understand what an SPF record is. Unfortunately we do not support in on our ...

Your boss is paranoid. Reading emails for the sake of SEO spam control is not something Google is doing. If they were caught doing that the Department of Justice would come down so hard on them they'd be lucky if they survived.

SLaks is correct, Google is not a registrar, but namecheap.com, hover.com and networksolutions.com are all registrars you could look into transferring for domain to.

I know this is an old thread, but the problem with 1and1 not allowing SPF records still exists, so I wanted to share my solution to the problem. 1and1 will allow you to use an external DNS server, and we chose GoDaddy.com Premium DNS for only $36/year. It's easy to set up the records (with a little help from tech support -- the configuration is called an ...

This depends on what you class as an "App" if you class a mobile version of your website i.e. m.yoursite.com then yes this will be classed as duplicate content. However, if you mean an app in the Google App Store then no this will not count as duplicate content. If you are however refering to the first, then this can be resolved easily using canonical and ...

So it sounds like you're concerned that Google App Engine will work and scale for you, but you're going to get to a point where you exceed their capacity to host you without being costly. Is that right? I think the thing to do here is to have an "exit strategy" for your App. I think you need this regardless of whether you exceed Google's limits or not. What ...

See this question and my answer over at ServerFault.com. When you have a CNAME, you cannot have other records of different types on the same hostname. This isn't a limitation of 1&1, it's a limitation of DNS itself.

From Google Webmaster Tools support: We recommend that you don't delete the file from your server. Better stick with their recommendations since it's a small file and won't cause you any trouble. Edit: Some people there say that their Google Apps Email got broken after they deleted their verification file. Edit 2: You can also verify by DNS, you won't ...

From GoDaddy's support page: What happens after domain names expire? Once a domain name expires, it goes through many stages before being released to the open market. Go Daddy sends five renewal emails to the domain name's administrative contact prior to the expiration date. Below is a timeline based on .com domain names. Day 1 We make the ...

Eek... I believe something like this happened to us on a test domain (I think it took a couple of weeks to be resolved though). There is an 'emergency' contact for Google. The only thing I could find was a 'service unusable' contact phone number (shown at our admin page): Google Apps phone line available for service unusable issues "Service unusable" ...

Google Apps is one that we are considering. However, they are charging $50 per user, per year. Not so bad, considering the quality and the features they offer. It's free for less than 50 users which makes it a great solution if you're working with a small company. Rackspace Email hosting is fairly cheap coming in around $24 a year per user versus $50 ...

It's not clear to me if you can manage the DNS of your domain or not. In order to configure your domain to use Google Apps, you must be able to configure your DNS records. In particular, you need to be able to change MX, CNAME and A records. You can find more here: Set up Google Apps services Configuring Your MX Records: Other domain hosts

The "Max CPC" field is the maximum you wish to pay per click. If you enter a Max CPC of $100 then you will never pay more than $100 per click, so the average will always be less than $100 - in this case $6.08. However, restricting it to $10 Max CPC means you're cutting out all the clicks from $10 to $100, therefore the average CPC will be less. Quick ...

In fact, I was signed up for the Free edition, but misunderstood the UI. Three things happened that caused me to misunderstand: Google Apps are transitioning to a new billing system, so my new domain's Google Apps UI looked different from my old domains' UIs. It has a "Billing & Subscriptions" tab. I thought this meant I must have done something ...

They all point to Google services though, as we use Google for our email. Am I likely to break email or other services by removing an old A record? If your MX records remain pointed to the Google mail server hosts, then you should be fine, providing that your nameservers are reachable and DNS table contains those MX records. As far as other "services", ...

GMail has no IP or region restrictions. What you could do though is enable 2-step verification to add further protection? This requires two steps in setting up, one at the domain level: Go to your Google Apps administrator control panel. Click the Advanced tools tab. Under Authentication > 2-step verification, check Allow users to turn on 2-factor ...

the subdomain should be "@" the next field should be the code from googleApps. Recordtype should be "TXT". I set my TTL to 1800 second. This allowed me to verify ownership in seconds.

This suggests that you just add the MX records like you usually do, just with the subdomain rather than the domain.
