Using Godaddy shared hosting email with Digital Ocean web hosting

Hi. Currently, I have a shared hosting with Godaddy. I wish to retain the domain email server with Godaddy, but host the website with DO. Is that possible? Thanks.



Yes it’s possible but keep in mind GoDaddy has a hard daily limit of 250 emails per account - per day including things sent through email clients as well as PHP email (example: WordPress).

This can easily be chewed up by newsletters or shopping carts. Both depend on emails to work and many times will return errors to the visitor if they are unable to send.

GoDaddy is perhaps the best option for now. But I think that you can improve and bring to perfection your site. want to recommend you one cool site where you will find help for the solution of your issue! In my mind, this service will be the best for you, because this company directs exclusively at mutually advantageous collaboration with you! Here work very competent people who are on call 24/7!

Hello, Yes this is possible. Just keep the DNS records for the email as you have it right now and change the needed A / CNAME records to your DO webserver. Then websites can be hosted on your droplet.
