+ RoundCube webmail is a web-based, multilingual IMAP client that has an interface similar to that of a desktop application. It has all the features you would expect from an email client, such as an address book, folder manager, message search, and spell checker (among others).
+ In this guide, I’ll walk you through the steps of configuring domain-based email in RoundCube using cPanel on 1Byte’s shared hosting
STEPS BY STEPS
1. Switch Your Nameserver to Basic DNS
+ Go to User Dashboard
+ Select Domain on the left menu bar
+ Choose Manage button at the domain where you want to set up email
+ At the Nameserver area, switch to Basic DNS
2. ADD DNS RECORDS
+ For example, my domain is 1byte-demo.uk, and I would like to have an email firstname.lastname@example.org based on this domain
+ First of all, you need to add A Record for your website
#Add A Record for your site Type: A Record Host: @ Value: 188.8.131.52 TTL: 30 min Type: A Record Host: @ Value: 184.108.40.206 TTL: 30 min #Add A Record for your mail Type: A Record Host: mail Value: 220.127.116.11 TTL: 30 min #Add TXT Record for your mail Type: TXT Record Host: default._domainkey Value: v=DKIM1; k=rsa; p=MIIBIjANBgkqhkiG9w0BAQEFAAOCAQ8AMIIBCgKCAQEAsmZJ6TO/BmM43TGeIUUgK5g4z+UuayjZheE2Cxjr7Ib5cYy/8NTkiqHMoHrkVuNEX96qb9VR1yVOm2fqJxm/bBpsbCA9KQpQrlbnmJQ6cI5BwOylEjnKYtgnEIFiR63fS4R3Xxkdi9mn73CaElAoVGJce1ixzR4rdnx/gKr43B52yaCBeOG6GkUU/hqMp3sMsVNceZ139PwKFqN7EQ85PK8cWcy8oLFn7tG/qzxaxR3pwZKeecj2SBanWzHly4tvScqCPMTc5M7YbEC/L5TQZX7L7nda8fvjehkGYQ0rdkZC7vFuHPMDDOPl27CMhhB+LnnWUQU1cXToxcK5ngrjVQIDAQAB; TTL: 30 min Type: TXT Record Host: @ Value: v=spf1 +mx +a +ip4:18.104.22.168 ~all TTL: 30 min
+ With the above record and its value added. The end outcome will be similar to the picture below
+ In Mail Settings section please choose Custom MX and add two MX record for your email
#Add MX Record for your mail Type: MX Record Host: @ Value: mail.1byte.com TTL: 30 min Type: MX Record Host: s1.1byte.com Value: mail.1byte.com TTL: 30 min
+ After Add Custom MX the result will look like image below
+ As you can see in the 1Byte’s YouTube, I set TTL = 1 minute for testing purposes only, since I want the DNS system to clear the cache and update the current settings every 1 minute. However, for production sites, this value will be ineffective since you are abusing the DNS System, causing it to become overcrowded and unstable.
→ The time to live (TTL) is often set to 30 or 60 minutes. Because of this, I advise changing the TTL for all DNS Recors to 30 or 60 minutes.
STEP 3. CREATE NEW EMAIL ACCOUNT
+ Go to Email Accounts
