  9. Hello. I started out with G Suite for a professional email. I set up two email accounts with my domain name. I pointed the domain to Hostgator because I’m building a website now. Do I need to follow these steps for my two email accounts? I’m not even sure I understand all of this, however I saw that pointing a domain to another host can affect the email accounts.
