Domain allocation?
« on: March 14, 2008, 11:05:20 pm »
Not sure exactly where to post this, but this forum looks good. I'm finally making the switch from Dreamhost to Xepher, so I'd like "jinxville.com" set as my domain for my account, "jinxville.xepher.net." Also, any idea how long before I can notify GoDaddy about the nameservers? I've never switched hosting before. Fesworks has been very helpful on the subject, but I'm nervous about downtime disrupting my (very meager) traffic flow.

Thanks in advance!

Soon as I get it setup on this end, you can transition the nameservers. Those changes supposedly take 24-48 hours, but in reality I usually see them hit within the hour. Assuming you have the same site mirrored at both locations, the actual transition would be seamless to users. A user would be sent to the old site, then whenever the change makes it to their server, the next page they view would be sent here. They wouldn't notice a thing.

On that note, I've set up things at this end, so go ahead and set the nameservers to ns1.xepher.net and ns2.xepher.net whenever you're ready.

Coooollll. Thanks! I'll finish getting this set up, and I'll let you know if I have any problem on this end, which I doubt I will.

Okay, I think I'm ready to switch the domain now.  Is there any chance you could tie 'project-future.org' (also 'www.project-future.org') to project-future.xepher.net?

Cheers,

No problem. *.project-future.org actually gets tied in. I've set up everything on this end, so you just need to set the DNS servers for your domain to "ns1.xepher.net" and "ns2.xepher.net" and once that propagates, everything should be good to go.

It's when you get several domain names, and you want to redirect them to a bunch of different directories... is when you can run into troubles... especially if you are running ComicPress :P

Done... I guess it's a matter of sitting back and waiting for it to propagate.
Thanks very much.

Hi, is there any chance projectfuturecomic.com could also be added?

Much obliged.  I set the nameservers up some time ago actually, but kept forgetting to ask.

Actually, it does not appear that you have. They're still set to ukdnsservers.co.uk See here: http://intodns.com/projectfuturecomic.com none of the info is the same as http://www.intodns.com/project-future.org

That is interesting.  I was sure I had - evidently it was working through luck rather than judgement.
