Complex question - my sites seem to work, but I've been trying to force a redirect from the non www url to the www.url ( as seems preferred for search engines) . In doing so I'm stmbling on some basics.
The site is hosted on a friends virtual server to which I have admin access. The PLESK control panel states "This server acts as a primary nameserver for the DNS zone xxxx.co.uk" and there are a list of MX records displayed.
But.. the site is registered by Easyspace and in the easyspace control panel, the nameserver is set to ns1.namecity.com & ns2.namecity.com .. which are easyspaces name servers. I have set the records here to point to my virtual servers ip address.
Now maybe I should have changed the nameservers away from easyspace to my virtual servers nameserver ( whatever that is ) and not modified the Easyspace MX records at all ... ...
The sites do work however, but maybe this wasn't the right way to do it. Once I understand what is what I'll progress onto the original issue.
Any help or comments would be appreciated.
