DNS Server Change - Affect Email

Feb 12, 2007

I have ever made a DNS Server change and I was curious how this is going to affect my e-mail.

Lets say this is my URL - www.testURL.com

I also have my e-mail setup as MyName@testURL.com

I now have a new host so we are going to change the DNS settings so www.testURL.com now points to the new web host. Is this going to affect my e-mail address MyName@testURL.com or do I also have to make a request to get the e-mail changed as well?

Can Your Server Setup Affect Your Websites Listing

Jul 26, 2007

I set up my own webserver earlier this year using a dedicated server from my hosting company (IIS, win2003), for some reason two of my websites on there are not being listed by Google (or any search engine) at all. Could there be something wrong in my setup that can cause this to happen?

Server's Hostname/nameservers Affect Mail Delivery

Mar 31, 2008

our company is ordering a new dedicated server and we are a little unsure what we should choose as far as the full hostname and nameservers of this one server.

This server will have a couple different websites on it, but really, there is only one BIG website on it... let's call it abcd.com.

While most would pick a hostname of host.abcd.com for instance, if at all possible, we would like the domain name part of the hostname to be something different than abcd.com. We own a domain name that doesn't point to anything yet (unuseddomain.com) and we were wondering if we could use that domain in our hostname.. host.unuseddomain.com.

And instead of using abcd.com as the domain name for our own nameservers (ie. ns1.abcd.com, ns2.abcd.com), we would like to again, use the unused domain name we own (unuseddomain.com) for the nameservers domain name: ns1.unuseddomain.com, ns2.unuseddomain.com.


Will this work? Is this perfectly acceptable?

And lastly...

Since the one website we really care about on this server (the one we got the server for in the first place) is abcd.com, is using the unuseddomain.com for the hostname and nameservers (as above) a bad choice in anyway regarding email deliverability? I understand that mail ISP's (hotmail, yahoo, etc.) do all kinds of checks on hostnames (PTR), etc... and we want to make sure that we aren't hurting ourselves in anyway by using an "empty" domain name that we own as our hostname's and nameserver's domain name.

For instance, if we send mail from the abcd.com account, it will use mail.abcd.com ( as it's outgoing mail server... Hotmail will see this... do a reverse-dns lookup on and see host.unuseddomain.com. See what I'm saying? It all will work, but will it toss up red flags?

Does The Server Site Load Affect On The Child Sites

Sep 9, 2008

I have seen 1 vps provider having very poor ping results in few online ping sites and they have a very cluster slow loading pages as well.

One of my friend has a package with them, the ping results are very poor even for him as well. Just made an traceroute found its on some node1.vpsprovider.com

Ya, one more major important similarity noticed was, the vps provider emails weren't set properly to yahoo mail, and my friend's emails sent from the server to yahoo weren't delivered as well.

So if the vps provider has poor content may be due to firewall or internal settings do the systems under the node also be affected?

I have no problems with my host so nothing to be worried about, but need to help him as he is just starting it out with a cheaper vps

Want To Change Email Systems

Feb 20, 2007

I have had enough of email problems that constantly happen on a server. For about three weeks now I have been dealing with email issues that I am going out of my mind. Does anyone have a suggestion as to a email scheme that will work. Here is what I would like to do. Disable Exim COMPLETELY. Either setup a server for email only or find a email solution. Email will be pointed ONLY by way of DNS.Once I get email fixed on this box it works for a day and next thing you know it's all messed up again. Somehow etc/localdomains and etc/remotedomains either vanish or get over written plus a bunch of other things including permissions.All I know is this is getting ridiculous.I don't want any sort of email system on this box. I want all my email to go though DNS only to another server. We already have on service that we use for Exchange, so all the MX Records point to that server, but email still has to interact with this server first, which I don't want it to.

Change Email Address In DNS Zone Template

When I load a new account into WHM a pre-figured email address is entered into the DNS Zone automatically using the DNS Template field %rpemail%

Can you tell me where the email address %rpemail% can be found and how to change it.

Also can I change %rpemail% to something else in that field so that the email address it calls up is perhaps the contact address for root or similar?

Sending Email To Another Server When The Email Address Domain Is On This Server

Jun 24, 2008

I currently have a domain on Server 1 (Linux, Apache, Ubuntu, Matrix control panel).

This server does not have any spam filter, so I have moved all the email accounts to Server 2 (Linux, Apache, Fedora Core, Plesk) which does have a brilliant spam filter; and have changed the DNS record for mail.domain.com to the IP address for Server 2.

Emails are being successfully received on Server 2.

On Server 1, when an email is sent through SMTP to an address at that domain, it does not send it to Server 2, it gets delivered to the hosting account for the domain on Server 1. So what I am guessing is happening is that Server 1 detects the domain has an account on the server, and instead of looking up the DNS info for that domain, just assumes it is on Server 1.

What I need to do, is force Server 1 to send email for that domain to Server 2. Is this possible, and if so, how can it be achieved? If more info about the server is required for a solution please let me know and I'll provide what I can.

Change Host, Change Domain And Getting Search Engines Up To Speed

Feb 5, 2008

Has anyone helped clients transition from one domain to another? Maybe dissolving a partnership or renaming their company... so a new domain name has been registered and a new website created.

2 Issues:

#1 Using .htaccess 301 redirect
We used the following command line in their old website's htaccess file

Redirect 301 / [url]

The goal was to get people try to visit any page of their old website (i.e. OldWebsite.com/contact.html) redirected to their new website (i.e. NewWebsite.com/contact.html). Isn't that supposed to change the address bar's URL, too? For some reason, I visit their old site and I seem to be redirected to their new website but the address bar still has their old domain name? Something is going on???

#2 Having their new company name for 2 years now. People can enter her new company name in Google, MSN or Yahoo. Her new company name appears in the search results but has the old domain name associated with it. We are trying to get rid of any reference to that old domain name? What's the easiest way to do this? So what people see in search engines is:

New Company
Short Meta Description

What steps did I miss in this transition?

What steps do I have to take on their old website/old web server to control it's appearance on search engines and make sure people get to the new website?

Email Issues When Email Is On Another Server

Jun 30, 2007

I have a client who has his own hosting account, and wants to leave his e-mail on his own hosting account, but his website on my hosting account.

On his own hosting he has created a sub domain called shop, and pointed its A record to the IP address of my server. On my server I've setup his domain name, and created the sub domain shop. That all works fine.

The problem I have is that the site under the shop domain needs to send an e-mail to sales@hisdomain.com. Now my server thinks the main domain is setup on my server, so it sends the e-mail to itself.

I'm justing wondering how I can get the server to point the mails back to his hosting?

A previous host I've used said they had to add the domain as a remote domain on the server, then they had to make some changes to /etc/localdomains because I was getting errors trying to send mails to the address.

Server Change Issues

May 28, 2007

I have a reseller package with HostGator.com , and I had one of my personal sites on it.

The site was growing too fast, and taking up too much of my reseller package, so i bought another normal hosting package from hostgator. They did a complete site copy onto the new server (same account name for site, just on a different one of their servers)

Old: (URL address blocked: See forum rules)~midnight/
New: (URL address blocked: See forum rules)~midnight/

I did this swap over 7 days ago. It was successful, everything worked, did my DNS swap and i thought that was it.

Now for the confusing part.
when i type in my domain ((URL address blocked: See forum rules)) it shows up perfect, as it should, as it does with 75% of my members


For the other 25%, its showing up as the old server. I have been onto my domain supplier, and they said all is fine at their end, they are seeing the site as they should, have been onto hostgator, and it works for them, they cant understand what it can be.

Not only this, but people who can get on, might still get the old servers at times. People who cant get on, can get on from different computers in different houses (hope that makes sense)

I was about to change the site back to my reseller package and scrap the new hosting, but said i would seek advice from other webmasters first.

Has anybody ever experienced this before? How is it solved? What can i do?
