If you see this message while creating an email account:

It means that your domain is not pointing to Hostinger at the moment, and additional verification is needed.

Why verification is needed?

We don't want someone else to use your domain to send emails on your behalf. You can help us keep your domain safe by showing us that you are the owner.


  • If you purchased your domain with Hostinger, and it is in the same account as your hosting account, you don’t need to verify it

How to proceed?

The easiest option - point your domain to Hostinger and wait for propagation to be completed.

If you want to only use mail services with Hostinger and the domain name to be pointed elsewhere by nameservers:

  • Open the service where your domain is pointed to by nameservers

  • Open DNS zone editor (it may have a different name based on the service) and add the following record:

Record type






the TXT record that is displayed in the gray field of the warning message

leave the default

To successfully send and receive emails, you need to add Hostinger Emails DNS records as well.


  • When you update your domain's DNS zone, you will need to wait up to 24 hours until changes are fully propagated 😊
