My website is hosted by Dreamhost, has been since the dawn of times. Its domain is abeille-cyclotourisme.fr (not hosted by Dreamhost but by Bookmyname). On Bookmyname, I have pointed abeille-cyclotourisme.fr to “ns1.dreamhost .fr” and two others equivalent (3 total) just that, no indication of IP. So far so good: its works. No need to worry, so far …
I just received from Dreamhost the following message by mail (“Dreamhost moves to Oregon”) and failed to understand what, except the fact it may be raining more often on the servers after the move, it means for me:
“Important note! If your site uses external DNS (i.e., not set up with our nameservers), you will need to configure your DNS provider with your site’s new IP addresses within seven days. We will email you with your new IPs after your site has been migrated. Your IP info is also available any time by clicking ‘DNS’ in your account control panel here:[…]”
Am I using external DNS ? Will I need, on Bookmyname, to point abeille-cyclotourisme.fr to other thing than ns1.dreamhost.fr and its two others pals or will that remain unchanged ? what of this IP stuff ?
Sorry for being a little thick. TIA for more clarification.
