I am building a new site for someone that currently has the e-mail hosted elsewhere. They will continue to host the e-mail but I want to host the pages here at DH.
I have previously set up one of my clients by having them change the DNS settings to NS1,Ns2, Ns3 dreamhost.com etc… and then making an A name for the ip of their e-mail server and then creating a custom MX record. That worked well in the DH panel.
But this new client wants me to give them an ip address and they will do the A name or C name and have that point to DH. In other words they will do the custom DNS settings.
How does this work with DH? Do I just add the domain as usual to my plan and what IP address would I give to him?
