Domain Name Change
Just wondering the impact of changing our domain name (currently a .sch.uk).
We run MS Exchange 2007.
If we were to register a new domain (or speak with nominet), I'm guessing MS Exchange could still run under the old domain name & just forward mail to the new domain. Could this be hosted on the same server or would it require a different server?
Open to thoughts & suggestions!
P.S. Also after a domain registrar who can handle .sch.uk domains where I'm able to control the DNS online?
We registered a .org domain for our school, went though 123-reg. Got county to allow the SMTP traffic through their gateways and routed down to our exchange server. Just pointed the MX records of the domain at the county IP/A-Rec and set exchange to have another domain in it's allow list.
You can now email us @crickhs.org and @crickhowell-hs.powys.sch.uk. the .org is a bit easier to say over the phone
It's just a matter of the correct records.
Ariotek host our website and do dns and we use live@edu for email.
nickbro, quite a seamless transfer then?
I have all my schools setup with CS New Media Web Hosting - UK Based Web Hosting, Reseller Hosting, VPS & Dedicated Servers. They have dns, MX, CNAME ..... editing and have .sch.uk names
