I am tired of the Webhost I bought the domain and hosting from. Now, I now want to transfer my domain to Godaddy and shift to some other hosting.

My Question: Who'll receive the mails sent to the email address associated with the domain, ex: [email protected]

My webhost or Godaddy?

1 Answer 1


Whoever you point your MX and DNS record to. You are the one that controls that.

  • So I can buy domain from Godaddy And once I've connected the domain with my webhost through editing nameservers, I can receive mails to my webhost?

  • @J.Ali Yes. You are in control. Your web host is not.
