I’m thinking of changing my hosting from a UK provider to Dreamhost. I do have DNS control of my domain and i’d rather just point that to Dreamhost rather than migrating over to Dreamhost. After talking to the guy on the phone he says I need to make the following changes to the domain.
Create new ‘A’ records pointing to the new ISP’s IP addresses for www, ftp and mail.
Create a new MX record pointing to the new ISP.
Currently the domain has CNAME’s set up for www, ftp and mail and one mx. These all point to a domain - home.btconnect.com, rather than an IP. For pointing the domain to Dreamhost account do I need to put in IP’s (as the service guy said) or CNAME domains?
Is any of this making sense? What do I need to do? It’s a bit over my head!
Thanks in advance.
