Hi, I'm working with a friend to get barryharris.com moved over to WestHost.
We got the web site files moved over with no problems. And as of today "www" is live. And we were in a bit of a hurry to get this part moved over so we did this first.
But now we'd also like to move over the name hosting, DNS and MX to WestHost as well. I am the domain admin so I can make changes to the NS and MX records on the current DNS servers.
But before I started making these changes I thought I'd ask: if we just move the domain name to be held by WestHost (instead of Network Solutions), do the DNS and/or MX records automatically get changed as well?
Just thinking "why bother changing the MX records if we're going to move the name hosting over anyway?"
But if I did just change the MX records on the existing host (so that we can get started on getting email working), is it as simple as creating one MX record with barryharris.com as the name (and same IP as www)? I'm not sure what IP WestHost wants us to use, but maybe that's all there is to it? :-)
If there is a doc somewhere I should be reading that describes all of this somwhere on the Westhost site, please feel free to tell me to read the manual :-) I just didn't see it when I was looking around.
