    Question about moving a site

    bradyg23
      This isn't a Dreamweaver question, but you guys have been great help in the past. Perhaps you can help me here.

      I have a customer, WC, who had a site through one of these 'template' companies. I have redesigned his site. His domain name is registered through Network Solutions. If I leave the domain registration with Network Solutions but CHANGE his hosting company, will anything (settings, Cnames, MX records, etc) need to change on their Microsoft Exchange server? They no longer have a network admin, and I'm not familiar with Exchange. I don't want to risk crashing their email for a day!

      Thanks!

          I think you are safe. That's one of the really nice things about using an
          exchange server....

            shouldn't have to change it on Exchange - however you will have to go to
            NetSol and change the DNS references to the new webhost's DNS entities.

              Thanks Murray... I had talked to GoDaddy about moving both my hosting account AND the domain, and they indicated that it could cause problems for a day or so.

              Will I have to set up all of their email addresses again after moving the hosting account? Or are they maintained on the Exchange server? (In the past with non-Exchange businesses I moved, it was simply a matter of updating their Outlook settings).

                This will only be true if you are not using an exchange server. When I do
                this for non-exchange server domains, I always have the clients set up a new
                email account that grabs incoming email from the new mailserver, while they
                also continue to get it from the old one. In the 72 - 96 hours it takes to
                be really sure all DN servers have propagated, they will receive email from
                both locations. After that time, they can then cancel their original
                hosting account, and remove the associated email account.

                No - not if they are using an exchange server.
