    Change Domain Name

    Our school has decided to change our domain name, as everyone is getting rather annoyed with typing in @alexandrapark.haringey.sch.uk

    We would like to move to a tidy .org.uk address, saving untold man hours typing in the current long domain.

    We are currently hosted by Synetrix. What would be the easiest way to transfer across to a new domain?

    I was thinking of registering the new domain with someone like hostpapa and setting up a forward to the old domain for the timebeing, then doing a proper migration in the summer. At least then we'd be able to get new business cards printed off right away.

    Any help / advice appreciated. Thanks.

    I would have thought that Synetrix (or Atomwide) would be able to do this for you. They should be able to host additional domains and it's usually possible for mailboxes to have multiple aliases.

    yep we have atomwide host our .org.uk address and all traffic for the .sch.uk address is directed to the .org.uk addresses - quite handy as enless you guys are under a different contract with them they seem to create sub domains and set up external addresses for free!!

    Who or what handles your email? If you're running on Exchange then you're going to add in new email addresses for all your users (it's not difficult but it's just something to remember!)
