    Start with your domain registrar, and find out the authoritative name servers for your domain. Then find out where those name servers are and what tools are available to modify DNS records for your domain. My old host had a web panel to manage DNS, kind of like GoDaddy has if they handle the DNS for a domain registered there.

    Due to the nature of DNS the edited DNS record(s) will not show up in all dns servers immediately, it may take hours to days for a change to be publicly visible everywhere.

    Edit MX records


    Hello,

    You have update the MX records in the hosting control panel where your website or server host.

    Just go to hosting control panel -> DNS setting -> Edit MX records.

    You have to wait for 8-12 hours for propagating the MX server.
