Setting Up Google Apps for my domain was a pain. I am trying to use ZOne Records but found no Tutorial, when I did URL Forwarding, It says Google Apps CNAME. I have no where to find it at all.

When I registered there was no record to change a specific CNAME, either upload a HTML File, or Add a TXT Record. Now I am stuck with where to set up my URL Forwarding with Google Email.

Thanks Alot YOLA!

Hello SconZ,

Thank you for your message. Unfortunately we are not able to provide e-mail support for externally purchased domains. If you are looking to set up e-mail with your domain, please seek assistance from the support at your registrar.

If you had a domain purchased through Yola, I would be able to assist you further. I am truly sorry for the inconvenience.

Kind Regards

Hi, you should use a CNAME record for your domain. The TXT one is harder. Just go to your domain register and create a CNAME record. With your unique string from Google. Insert that in the "Host" Then, in "Points to IP" or something like that, put Just log into and go to DNS records or whatever the name of the page is and then add a CNAME. And, copy that unique string and paste it in for the "host" part or similar (Usually the first field) Then, make sure it is a CNAME, and in the Points to domain or Points to IP or whatever that field name is, insert "" I got my email with Google set up: (I use not but they are similar)

(P.S: Sorry for all the whatever's!:) I am rushing right now.)
