I currently have my website and email services managed by Office 365. Name servers for my domain are currently pointing at
ns2.bdm.microsoftonline.com to let Office 365 manage DNS records.
I would like to now move my website off of Office 365 and into Squarespace, but keep all other Office 365 services (such as email) running. I would also like to conduct this migration with as little downtime as possible (preferably 0). What is the best way to do this?
Microsoft has two help pages for this:
SquareSpace has one help page:
SquareSpace's documentation points to the Microsoft's second link above, which has instructions to change the DNS settings. From the limited experience I have, changing DNS settings will incur some downtime, which is something I would like to avoid. Therefore, the first link looks promising, but I have not tried it yet.
- Is the first link the best approach?
- Is there a better way?
- Or is there no way around changing DNS settings and incurring downtime?
