Launching your website is crucial for making it accessible to the public and establishing credibility for your business's brand. This process involves updating your domain's DNS Nameservers to direct users to your Real Geeks website.
Follow these instructions to make the necessary adjustments to your website, so you can start generating new leads and attracting potential clients to your real estate business.
Before Launching The Site
Ask yourself the following questions before launching the website on your own:
|Do you Have MLS Approval?||Do you use a Domain Email?|
Before you can promote your MLS data to the public, we will need to get permission to display their data on your website.
Failure to obtain proper approval before launching the website could result in a fine from your MLS.
Contact Onboarding@realgeeks.com for questions about your approval status!
If yes, your email may go down if you do not notify support.
Contact us at email@example.com so we can make sure that we are using the correct MX Records for your email service.
Real Geeks recommends avoiding these changes overnight or over the weekend, as our support team will not be available to finalize the changes. Contact Support once you have completed the changes below.

What are MX Records?
MX stands for mail exchanger. MX records specify the mail server that will receive and send emails through your domain.
This record is required to be set up if you wish to continue receiving emails at your domain. Generally, we can copy the records from your previous name servers but only before you've made the switch. Contact your Email Provider to learn how to obtain this information.
If you do not currently receive email at the domain but you would like to, we recommend you Set Up Google Apps.
