Back up your email and website. These files cannot be transferred from their current provider to Comcast.
Check that your domain displays Active on the Manage domains page (and confirm that you have backed up your email and web hosting files). Once active, you have three options from which to choose to use Comcast for:
Option 1. both email and website hosting,
Option 2. just email hosting, or
Option 3. just website hosting.
Directions for options 1, 2 and 3 are as follows:
Option 1. For both email and website hosting through Comcast, access your registrar (e.g., Godaddy.com, Network Solutions) and update the current Name Server entries to the following Comcast addresses:
Note: If needed, the IP address for adns.cs.siteprotect.com is 126.96.36.199. The IP address for bdns.cs.siteprotect.com is 188.8.131.52
You have now completed integrating your current domain with your Comcast Business Internet service.
Option 2. If you only want Comcast to host your email, you will need to update your MX records with your DNS provider to the correct Comcast MX records as follows:
• Select DNS info for domains.
• The DNS name will display the information for your registered domain.
• The MX records will start with mq01 / mq02 / mx01.
• The DNS name will also display the Mail server records of:
• Autodiscover / SMTP / POP /IMAP
Please note that these Mail server records are entered as “CNAME” records by your DNS provider (Example: autodiscover.mydomain.com ttl CNAME autodiscover-rd.”yourmailserver”)
Option 3. If you only want Comcast to host your website, you will need to update only your A record to the correct Comcast A record. To obtain the correct Comcast A record, please call 1-800-391-3000.
1. Sign in to your Comcast Business online account and select Websites from the Manage Services menu.
2. Select DNS info for domains.
3. Under Domains, select your registered domain from the dropdown list.
4. The DNS Name will display the information for your registered domain.
