I FINALLY quit Go Daddy and now am going with myhosting.com for outlook 2007 exchange

So now I have to change the MX records and DNS etc in my godaddy account since my domain is still with Go Daddy, but I am going to have myhosting.com supply outlook and the exchange along with enterprise for my blackberry. How do I change those records or are there people that will do them for a fee so I do not have to mess with them?

It's generally very easy to do this.  First off, log in to your Godaddy account ASAP and capture all of the existing settings that are on file for your domain.  I'm not familiar with myhosting.com, but it should be a similar process as Godaddy, and I'll show you that now.

1.) Log in to Godaddy and click on the black "My Account" Button on the right side of the main bar.

2.) Hit the + next to Domains and hit the green Launch button in the right column for your domain name.

3.) Launch the DNS Manager.  This is where everything you need lives.

You'll want to print out everything you see on this page BEFORE the domain transfers so that after the domain is on the new site, you'll be able to enter these values into the DNS manager for the new registrar.

You may have a lot of "extra" Alias (Cname) records, you can either enter them all, or just use the ones that you know you need.

Remember it can take several hours / days to transfer the domain from one registrar to another, I like to kick it off on friday nights and it's usually done by Monday.  Keep checking your website or whatever and when you see it switch from your old page to the new temporary page, that's when you know it's time to go into the new host and enter all the data.

Good luck!
