Hi folks.


I need to find a new registrar for my .nz domain name, and I need one who will do forwarding to my iCloud email address. No hosting required.


Any recommendations?

1stdomains, discount domains, are all good registrars that do.

Please note, forwarding email in this way will end up with you missing out on lots of email due to SPF record issues.


Essentially, will say that only their servers are allowed to send email for that domain.


Domain registrar forwards the email - essentially sending email from their mail server as


iCloud will check the SPF record and drop the email as spam because it should have only come from the authorised servers.




Would suggest using something like Zoho Mail for your domain instead (free for a couple of users), Gmail, etc


(There are plenty of free services which will do proper email forwarding, which domain registrars do not do)

Maybe if you're forwarding to Xtra with their new setup... iCloud and most other providers (Hotmail, Gmail) should okay receiving the forwarded messages.
