Okay, here is the deal. Today I registered www.hellodustin.com over at Yahoo. Then I registered for a year at www.dreamhost.com with the level1 plan.
I obviously need to now forward anybody who visits www.hellodustin.com to the dreamhost files. I also need to setup something on yahoo so my mailserver on DH is utilized.
On Yahoo’s Advanced DNS Settings page I’ve got 3 sections listed: A and CNAME records, mx records, name servers.
What do I need to add/delete/change in each of those 3 sections?
Under the name servers section, I have added the primary secondary and additional address that dreamhost has provided me via email. Other than that, I haven’t changed anything.
It is to my understanding that DH provides several email addresses, so I’d imagine in my Yahoo settings I’d need to change something under the mx records section to specify to use the mail servers over at DH.
Also I’m curious if I have to change anything in the a and cname records section. Also any other help would be appreciated.
