At my workplace, we have a pretty messed up setup for our website, say
domain.com, that was earlier hosted with another company, say
hostingCompany1, there are 2 control panels:
- Domain (has the
domain.com, points to some IP)
- Hosting (points
domain.comand subdomains to our server, has Gmail MX records)
We are using our own server with the settings still at the second control panel.
Which means, when someone visits our site, it resolves to:
hostingCompany1 DNS >
hostingCompany1 Hosting >
This is a pretty messed up scenario and I would like to clean it up to be more like:
hostingCompany2 DNS >
- When I finally transfer
hostingCompany2, how do I achieve the above scenario (i.e., remove the middle man)?
- Do the domain settings (MX) have to be on
hostingCompany2or our custom server?
