Mx entry exposes IP

it seems as though when setting up my wordpress website (via Shared hosting on Racknerd), it shows that an MX record may be exposing an ip. Not sure what to do here, or if I need to even worry about this at all?

That’s expected behavior when you host email on the same IP address as your website. Cloudflare does not proxy email, so your server needs to be directly reachable for email.

Though Email should be on its own :grey: subdomain…even if it’s the same IP address.

Thanks for the reply. I’m not sure exactly how to get it on my own subdomain. I assume that would be in the cPanel of Racknerd?

That would have to be set up at your host. They normally provide a bunch of DNS entries for email, ftp, etc.
