We have a potential client that has an existing account with Verizon. He wants a website. He says that he already has a domain name. He has all his employees hooked up with email already. I’m assuming this suffix is the domain he wishes to use for his website URL. I’m thinking of hosting it here at Dreamhost because I like the features in the packages, like .php and the user friendly panel!!
1] Do we need to do anything prior to the domain transfer, from his “verizon” server to dreamhost, for the existing email addresses to follow? I read in “Knowledge Base” the transfer is smooth, but would like to know if there are special steps before and after the domain transfer.
2] Has anyone, with existing email addresses, transfered a domain from one hosting company into dreamhost, experienced any email switching problems besides the in-between 1-2 period for propagation?
Thank you much. Hope to get a response, as I would love to host his site on dreamhost smoothly!!!
