How do I point just the Website to another IP but keep the emails to existing hosting?

Here is the situation:

 

You have a running website www.domainname.com
You want to now point the website to another hosting (IP: IP: 202.51.74.81) but you want the email hosting to remain on your existing hosting (IP: 202.63.240.138)

 

This is one of the ways to do it:
(Please make a backup copy of your DNS before you make any changes.)

 

You go to cPanel – > DNS Zone Editor – > and just edit this A record.

domainname.com 14400 IN A
202.51.74.81

 

And secondly,

domainname.com 14400 IN MX
Destination: mail.domainname.com

 

Among other DNS, make sure this is left as it is:

mail.domainname.com. 14400 IN A
202.63.240.138
webmail.domainname.com. 14400 IN A
202.63.240.138
cpanel.domainname.com. 14400 IN A
202.63.240.138

 

Note:

To check your email via browser, you may be using webmail.domainname.com or domainame.com/webmail.
Regardless, the second step mentioned above will work, because everything pointing to the mail server is handled by it.

 

Important note:
The above configuration may not work on every circumstances and we the company will not be held responsibile for anything whatsoever.
