First let me say I am a self taught web builder and I am at a very basic level just trying to get my small art business website up and running by myself. I enjoy the graphic design piece the most but I have run into a sys admin stumbling block and just want to make sure I have things setup correctly.
I submitted a help ticket to Network Solutions with not much help. So I ended up here on this great resource site. I have searched for my answer here but am still questioning my setup. So any suggestions or corrections to my setup would be greatly appreciated.
Assuming my domain name is www.mydomain.com and I am registered at Network Solutions. I would like to:
Keep my established email accounts at Network Solutions so I do not lose any incoming emails during my domain transfer process. I currently have two email accounts setup with network solutions. (email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org)
Transfer my www.mydomain.com to a new host where I have been building a new site. The new host for my website has the following dns settings: (ns1.primweb.com, 22.214.171.124 and ns2.primweb.com, 126.96.36.199)
Here is what I currently have setup in my Domains section under www.mydomain.com with Network Solutions:
IP Address (A Records)
www 7200 188.8.131.52 @ (None) 7200 none * (All Others) 7200 none www.mydomain.com 7200 184.108.40.206
Mail Servers (MX Records)
mydomain.com MXMailServer(Preference) TTL inbound.mydomain.com.netsolmail.net.(10) 7200 Network Solutions E-mail
Host Aliases (CNAME Records)
Alias TTL Refers to Host Name mail.mydomain.com 7200 mail.mydomain.com.netsolmail.net. Network Solutions E-mail smtp.mydomain.com 7200 smtp.mydomain.com.netsolmail.net. Network Solutions E-mail
If anyone sees any glaring errors that would keep my domain from trasferring to the new host and/or mess up my current email accounts, please let me know. So far my email is working properly but my site is not transferring.
This novice appreciates and thanks you for your time and help in advance!
