I am currently using the DNS provided by my virtual webhost but I am thinking about switching over to ZoneEdit for more control. My host is running the latest release of cpanel and apache. My question is that if I use ZoneEdit and I point the IP to my host, will the server automatically work? Is this even possible? Or do I need a dedicated IP?
I was going to use this a while ago also. Doesn't it set it up so that tou use Zoneedits's nameservers and those are pointing to your hosts nameservers? So if you got a new host you would change where the zoneedit nameserveres were pointing and not have to wait for the change to resolve?
Since nameservers of your domain are now at ZoneEdit, you can use the e-mail service ZoneEdit provides to you (e.g. forwarding) but you can also set up MX record at ZoneEdit if you want your mail to be handled else where.
