Changing external domain name extension procedures.
Posted on 2014-02-28
Can someone point me in the right direction for this -
we have an external domain name of company.com and need to change to company.org. Our website is hosted externally so I will work with them to have the appropriate site changes made. I assume creating the correct DNS changes with Network Solutions will point the new company.org name to the appropriate IP address will take care of that...unless I am missing something there. As for email - that is where it gets more complicated for me....again, would need to make appropriate MX dns changes -we are on Exchange 2010.....that is where I am not exactly sure. Can we keep both the old @company.com as well as the new @company.org emails flowing into our exchange server (at least for a while)? I don't think this is going to be real complicated but just want to make sure I have everything covered.
We will not be changing our internal domain name at all (at least for now :) )
