I'm putting together a website for a friend, but I'm having a problem. They have registered domain names already, which have been setup with GMail and Google Apps (presumably through their domain registrar). A whois lookup on the domains says their DNS is pointed at:
Name Server: NS1.NOVARA.IE
Name Server: NS2.NOVARA.IE
Name Server: NS3.NOVARA.IE
I have asked them to change the nameservers to those of Dreamhost so I can setup his hosting account, but he maintains that this will "break" google apps, and requests that I forward him on a CName instead.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I should do - I can't find any relevant information on CNames on the Dreamhost wiki. My guess is that using the "Fully Host This Domain" feature and selecting Gmail + Google Apps might work, but any help would be much appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
