I currently am dealing with a client whose e-mail is hosted on Google. We are just in the process of taking over their domain, but their current hosting company suggests a different set up than I do and I was wondering if you could tell me some technical pros and contras of one or the other set up. Say their nameserver is ns.excompany.org And our nameserver is ns.incompany.org. Our server's IP is [IP]
The set up they suggest is the following: DNS for domain points to ns.excompany.org They have an A-record pointing to [IP] for the website They have an MX-record pointing to Google for mail
The set up I suggest is DNS for domain points to ns.incompany.org We have an MX-record pointing to Google for mail
The things that came to my mind were 1. If we ever, for whatever reasons, have our server's IP address changed, they will have to change it as well. 2. The client has to keep the old hosting company and keep paying them to maintain that set up, hence pays three services when they'd only need to pay for two services.
Are there any actual technical aspects/differences you could name?
