As an aside, be prepared to lose that first domain as part of a UDRP complaint. That is a pretty blatant trademark violation.

comment Nameservers: Can I setup 5 ips to 1 server and have only 2 nameservers?
Your e-mail and DNS can be on entirely different systems and often use different domain names. For example, if I own example.com and have mail.foo.com as my mail provider, I would just add an MX record to the example.com zone and point it to the provider as @ IN MX 10 mail.foo.com. The mail server will then need a reverse DNS entry which corresponds to its IP address, and preferably one that has a host which also resolves back to the IP. That reverse name doesn't have to have anything to do with the domains actually hosted on that mail server and the DNS host can also be different.

comment How to Monitor Bandwidth usage in real terms
That office environment was not your typical locked-down corporate prison; they were all pretty technical people (developers) who all brought in their own systems to work on (laptops), so they weren't using a domain with software installation restrictions or anything of that sort. Everyone was essentially their own administrator for their own box.

comment Keyboards for kiosk/outdoor/abusive environments?
Thanks John, we may have to do something like that. We looked at the types of things used by places like McDonalds that can take a lot of continual use but they rely on thin plastic overlays which can be easily torn off, cut, ripped, etc. and wouldn't last long out in public. We may just have to go the ultra-rugged route or try to roll our own at some point.

comment Moved DNS and Email Hosting, Now Can't Send/Receive To/From Domains Hosted on Previous Host
From the information provided, it does in fact appear that the old provider still has outdated DNS information on their name server which they will need to remove. If they don't have a clue as to how to do this, I'd move everything away from them sooner than later and use a provider with employees that know what they're doing.

comment Moved DNS and Email Hosting, Now Can't Send/Receive To/From Domains Hosted on Previous Host
It could be an old zone file, but I was referring to the mail server configuration itself (i.e. the mail server could still be set up to handle mail for the domains that are no longer pointed to it).
