I’ve always done my own hosting through a business DSL. Looking to get professional shared hosting, DreamHost looks like the service for me. I’m a bit nervous about the transition. I’d like to move mail, web and domain over, but I’d like to stagger it just to be able to test each step.
When I transfer my domain, is it easy to keep pointing the A records where they are now? That way, I can set up a test subdomain to debug any web and e-mail things and document the changes for my users without any impact until I flip the switch to move the web and finally the e-mail.
Thanks for any insights.
