If you have email only hosting account with us and would like your domain name to be redirected to any other site but your mail be sent/received by our servers you would need to use the following settings in order to make both your mail and your site functional:

1. Login to your Namecheap account > Domains button.

2. Go to Manage Domains.

3. Click the domain name you ordered Email hosting for.

4. Click on All host records link.

5. Use the following settings:

HOST NAME               IP ADDRESS/URL                                         RECORD TYPE

@                            http://www.destination_domain.com               URL Redirect

www                        http://www.destination_domain.com               URL Redirect

SUBDOMAIN SETTING

mail                          dns1.namecheaphosting.com                         NS Record 

mail                          dns2.namecheaphosting.com                         NS Record 

pop                           mail.your_domain.com                                 CNAME (Alias)

smtp                         mail.your_domain.com                                 CNAME (Alias)

webmail                     http://mail.your_domain.com/webmail           URL Redirect

mailadmin                  http://mail.your_domain.com/cpanel              URL Redirect


Make sure that your domain name is pointed to our default nameservers version 2.

6. Follow Mail Settings field > select User (Mail Server's Host Name Required) >  Your Email Hosting radio-button

Please note: There is no other way to make your domain redirect and email working. If you setup CNAME for your domain name without www, all other host records will be disabled because your domain will be pointed to another host.
