Is it possible to register a domain name (i.e. mycompany.com) and then have a company virtual host our website (www.mycompany.com
) AND host an email server IN HOUSE with that same domain name (i.e. email@example.com)? Before I go messing with MX records and resolving IP addresses I'd like to get a handle on whether this is feasible or not. Currently we are running SBS 2003 Premium Edition hosting our own site and email server as well as file and print sharing. I'd like to get the website hosted off site for better security (and less of the headache), but would like to retain email serving capabilities. I don't really know what sort of setting would be correct to accomplish this. Here's our current domain settings for reference.
DNS: Currently on register.com's DNS servers but would change to hosting company's when I make the switch.
IP Address: Currently resolves to our static IP here at the office (say 188.8.131.52 for use here). Not sure how this will figure into the mix when the switch happens.
MX: Host Name = mycompany.com Mail Server = mail.mycompany.com
If you guys/ladies need any other info just let me know.
