How to Configure MX Records for G Suite in Cpanel

Configure MX Records for G suite in cPanel

What is MX Records?

A mail exchanger record (MX record) identifies the mail server that accepts email messages on behalf of a domain name. In the Domain Name System, it is referred to as a resource record (DNS). Several MX records can be configured, typically pointing to an array of mail servers for load balancing and redundancy.

While using cPanel to host your domain, you can use Google Workspace for email. You’ll need to point your MX records in cPanel to Google’s Workspace mail servers for this.

In the cPanel admin dashboard, you can set up MX records for Google Workspace.
