In September 2022, A2 Hosting will stop supporting Barracuda Spam Protection. If you have been using Barracuda, you will receive a prorated account credit for the remaining unused amount.
For customers who host their DNS with A2 Hosting, end of support will take effect on September 2, 2022. Your email will continue to work as it does now. You do not need to make any changes.
For those who host their DNS with a provider other than A2 Hosting, end of support will take effect on September 6, 2022. For your email to continue to work as it does now, you must update your DNS settings with your provider. You should change your domain's MX record from barracuda.supercp.com to the name of the server that hosts your A2 Hosting account. For information about how to determine the server name for your account, please see this article. If you need assistance updating your DNS settings, please contact your DNS provider, or open a ticket on the A2 Hosting Customer Portal at https://my.a2hosting.com.
