Migrating your domain to Skiff MailMigrating your domain to Skiff Mail can be done in minutes. Once you’re on a Skiff Pro or Skiff Business paid plan, you will have access to custom domains in your Skiff Mail account. Visit the custom domains settings page and click “Transfer domain.” Then, after entering your domain name, you’ll be provided with DNS records to add to your domain (MX record, TXT records, and CNAME records). Once these records are added, your domain will be verified, and you can use it to send and receive email on Skiff.Paid plans allow you to transfer multiple domains that can be shared with your team members. All workspace members will have access to a separate Skiff Mail inbox that can be provisioned with custom domain aliases, such as [email protected], or [email protected].If you want to set up your Skiff Workspace with a new domain, you can purchase a domain through Skiff Domains, which will automatically provision all needed DNS records. You can also set up the needed DNS records on your new domain from any other registrar (GoDaddy, Google Domains, Namecheap, etc.) after buying a new domain name.
