Hi there,

In case that by Private Email, you are referring to the email service offered by Namecheap, what you could do is:

  • Get your DNS records from Namecheap.
  • Go to your active DNS zone, you can check that by running whois and look for the name servers listed there.
  • If you are using the DigitalOcean name servers, you can add your DNS records by following the steps here:

  • If you are using different name servers, go to your DNS provider and add the DNS records there.

Hope that this helps and let me know if you have any questions.
