Moving from wordpress site to big cartel


#1

Hi,
I have my email and website hosted with dreamhost, but i have created a new website with big cartel. I am planning to delete my wordpress installation and use big cartel instead. i understand that i can change my domain to point to the new big cartel website. But i want to keep my email hosting with dream host. Will pointing my domain to the big cartel website break my emails?

thanks :slight_smile:

Depends how you do it. If you change the nameservers for the domain then yes your email will break. This also changes who manages the DNS for the domain.

If you use an A-record or CNAME record to make then change then no your email will remain untouched.

These are just the 3 most common methods you could use, there could be others to consider. Each have distinct pro’s and con’s.
