My domainname is registered at Enom. There I have setup my Google Apps MX records and several other DNS records, like an A record pointing to my current hosting environment.
I want to move my hosting to Webhostinghub. Everything is ready to go live, but I'm a bit reluctant to do so. It seems to be WHH's policy not to point to the hosting environment with an A record, but instead to change the NS records for my domain all together. If I'm not mistaken, that would mean that I loose all my DNS settings at Enom.
What is the best way to go forward?
1. Copy all the DNS records to WHH, point the NS records at Enom to WHH and delete all the DNS records at Enom, or
2. Leave all the non-hosting related DNS record set at Enom and somehow make sure that mydomain.com and www.mydomain.com get routed to WHH (how?)
3. some other way that I did not think of.
Remember: Anytime you modify the DNS, it can take up to 24 hours to propagate to he world.
If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.
Thanks for the clear answer. I would then like to keep my DNS records where they are: at Enom.
Just to be sure: pointing an A record to the Shared IP address is a supported method by you, right? By which I mean: should that IP address change for some reason in the future, I would get notified beforehand, so that I can make the appropriate changes to my A record. I would not want you saying that I should have used the NS approach in the first place (since that theoretically gives you more control over the mapping of domain names to IP addresses)...
