I am about to move my website from 1and1 to Shopify, but 1and1 will remain the domain manager. The website transfer requires me to create a subdomain in 1and1 that is directed to Shopify and also change the
I did not complete the process because when I changed the
CNAME as directed by Shopify, a pop up warning from 1and1 stated that after changing
MX numbers will be deleted. I need to maintain the
MX on the root domain because 1and1 will continue to handle my email.
My question is whether the word "all" in the pop up entails the
MX numbers on the root domain too or just the
MX numbers for the subdomain. I don't want the root domain
MX numbers changed or I lose email. I've talked to two 1and1 tech support reps and they cannot seem to give me a straight answer.
