If you want to receive emails to your shared hosting account, you just need to add the appropriate MX records to your domain name.

You can usually figure out what they are in the DNS Manager of your shared hosting account. If not, just contact your shared hosting provider asking them about the MX records.

Thank you @fishy , currently I’m using A record and using shared hosting email service, Is it good ? sorry for asking such a thing, because I’m a developer and new to DNS stuff and

Ask your shared hosting provider. More than likely, the answer will be no. Sensible shared hosting providers do not allow remote connections to their server for sending email.
