How do I add MX records in my cPanel Advanced Web Hosting plan?

To add MX records in cPanel, please follow these steps:

  1. Sign into your cPanel account.
  2. In the “Mail” section, click on the “MX Entry” icon.
  3. Select a domain from the drop-down menu.
  4. In the “Add New Record” section, set the priority for the new MX entry, keeping in mind that 0 is the highest priority.
  5. In the “Destination” text box, type the hostname of the new mail exchanger. This must be a fully qualified domain name, you cannot specify an IP address here.
  6. Click on the “Add New Record” button to save your changes.


To delete an MX entry, please follow these steps:

  1. Click on the “Delete” button next to the appropriate MX entry.
  2. Confirm that the entry should be deleted by clicking the “Delete” button again.

You will need to delete the existing MX record before adding your new MX record.
