OK...here is my situation.
I have a domain registered on godaddy.
I have a hosting account with hostgator to host email and special pages.
My main site is a wordpress blog maintained by a 3rd party on their server.
I want to point my "website.com" and "www.website.com
" to my 3rd party service but want to keep control of all of the subdomains AND more important email on my hostgator account.
When I successfully had control of subdomains and an A record set to send the traffic to my 3rd party service - my email was broken.
Ideas on how to have all three of the following:
1) Main domain have an A record pointing at the 3rd party service (if you have a way other than A record I am open)
2) Keep control of the email
3) Still be able to use subdomains for other projects like "faq.website.com" or "helpdesk.website.com"
