This is a continuation of a question that I already posted, but this is distinct enough to warrant a new question I believe.
I've got a client who knows very little about how their domains are managed and hosted. After some digging, I found out that the domain is registered through Tucows, but that another company (GSI) is the Registrar of record.
GSI is also the hosting company. Now, when I login to GSI's control panel, I can view DNS information and change it. One of the options is "Start of Authority Server", and its value is "dns.greensoft.com."
So, my question...if I wanted to move this completely away from GSI (they are charging outrageous hosting fees of $800 per month for a site that does 10 MB of traffic. You read that right...), then I need to do 2 things. First, move the registrar from Tucows/GSI to Godaddy, for instance...what the heck do I do? Is the "Start of Authority Server" the setting I need to change to Godaddy?
I have other domains, and the Registrar (Godaddy, Network Solutions) is where I go to set the Nameservers. The nameservers are at the hosting company that I eventually use (if I'm remembering this right) and from there I can setup MX, A, CNAME etc records.
Any help would be appreciated to let me know what I need to do to get my client away from this ridiculous hosting deal.
