What happens next?

If you have changed your DNS records then you must wait for an email from us with your email login details.

Unfortunately DNS changes can take upto 72 hours to take effect. So you do need to wait and there's nothing we can do to speed this process up.

Don't worry - you'll get an email within 1-2 days with full details of how to use your email. Sometimes it will be within a few hours.

How can I check my mail?

Please see the email we sent you with your login details. It will arrive between 1 and 2 days after signup and often within a couple of hours.

Note that your billing account login details are different from your email login details. This is because one billing account may have many email accounts.

In short: mail is checked here: using your email login details we send you by email (not your billing account login details).

I don't understand what to do. Please help.

Please open a ticket - and one of our team will get back to you.

If you want us to change your DNS records then please include your full login details for your domain. If you registered your domain with Shopify then you can send staff access to and we will do it for you.
