I have a CNAME record:
cdn.example.com. IN CNAME examp.vo.llnwd.net
which was registered through Limelight. Do I need to go back to Limelight release this record? Or if I just generate a new CNAME for "cdn.example.com" through my domain registrar will it get replaced automatically?
My objective is to alias "cdn.example.com" directly to an EC2 server for the next few months while our traffic is light, and switch to a new CDN before our next surge.
Thanks in advance.
EDIT: It turns out that our domain registration at YahooDomains is pointing to MediaTemple namespace servers. (I didn't set this up.) That's why I was confused about the missing CNAME record. So now I guess I need to track down the MediaTemple account and check the CNAME records there. Does this mean that the CNAME records at YahooDomains are meaningless?
