Hey friend!

Great question. Your root domain (domain.tld, excluding subdomains) will generally have an A record and one or more MX records. The A record is what a web browser pulls to connect your domain to the web server that hosts your website. The MX record is what an email server pulls to send email to your domain. As these are separate records, they can both be pointed in any direction that you like. If you host your DNS elsewhere (your nameservers, sometimes managed by your domain registrar), you can follow Google’s instructions for setting up the DNS records required to use their service:

If you use us as your DNS provider (meaning you set your nameservers to ours), you can find instructions for setting up Google’s DNS records here:
