Ok so this week the company i have my server with have done a runner (intelliserve) . Im about to buy an ubuntu server off FEhosting but its asking me for my domain. do i write down the old ip adress of my server with Intelliserve? would that mean that when people connect to the old ip it will bring them to the new server?
Firstly, where was your domain registered?
If your domain was registered through intelliserve, you have got a problem.
If your domain wasn't registered through intelliserve, when you sign up with FEhosting, enter the required info(no need to enter an ip). Once your server is setup, get the ns(nameserver) details of your server at FEhosting and ask the registar where your domain is registered to point the dns for your domain to that.
