cPanel and Hosting Options?

I have a domain that I'm currently using for my website. It's also linked to my Google business email. I am using GoDaddy managed WordPress, but I need access to cPanel. How do I go about changing my hosting option, and how do I make sure my email address isn't affected in the process? Is there a good starter guide anywhere for someone like me who has only used managed WP before?

Did you change/add MX servers for your Google email to your domain record?


If you are just changing hosting options but staying with GoDaddy, your MX servers which handle email shouldn't change.  But.... I would get on the horn with GoDaddy and ask for confirmation of that process just to be safe!


HTH! 😉
