Migrate domain, part 3

Monday, January 7th, 2008

As said before, ‘the proof of the pudding is in the eating’…so, let’s eat!

I just finished the last steps of the .com domain transfer and set up the hosting account. Have to admit, the migration process so far went really smooth, it just took some days (and the weekend inbetween didn’t help I guess).

Current status for the domain hosting is ‘Pending DNS’, so by the time the new location for this domain (with GoDaddy) is propagated through the root nameservers (appr. 24-48 hours) I should be good to go!

The MX-records are already adjusted for Google Apps and I have set a domain forward to the .nl domain (actually matching what it is today). This means that opposite to what I thought earlier, there should be no downtime for the website nor email…fingers crossed!
