Hi Matt, I hope I am joining the conversation in the correct place, coz I am a noob here!
My question, further to the info you've shared below:
My domain is booked with godaddy.
Email is running with another provider.
Now I want to host the site on dreamhost.
My confusion, is if I change nameservers to ns1.dreamhost.com etc, will the email MX settings get messed up?
What do I need to do in my godaddy domain control panel, that sends visitors to my dreamhosted site, while leaving MX settings untouched.
Thanks in advance. I hope my question itself is clear.
