Good morning -
I'm a product manager type building an application for the first time. I've taught myself the ruby and rails pieces, but I'm a little gunshy about the sysadmin stuff. I apologize in advance if this is a trivial question.
My domain.com is registered at Dreamhost. My email goes through Dreamhost, and the domain.com currently redirects to blog.domain.com, which is hosted at Dreamhost.
I've been building out the application at Slicehost (it has a couple of application servers, in addition to the web server). I've been hitting the site directly at the IP address as I've been building it.
So now, I want to tell Dreamhost that domain.com should point to the Slicehost machines, but I still want to have Dreamhost managing the domain.com email traffic.
I looked at CNAME, but this looks like it would redirect the mail, too. I'm a little lost, and I have the creeping terrors that bad things will happen if I mess this up.
Thanks for any direction you can provide,
