    Chaning Records instead of Re-pointing?

    Hi Guys,

    What would be the chance of success in this scenario?

    A guy contacted me about wanting to purchase some of my hosting, however, he can not change the domain name servers,however, he can edit any record within the domain name.

    If I send him the domain records for MX,smtp, ft, Webmail etc wil he be able to purchase some hosting and have his domain function through my host? I am almost possible its possible, but whats the chance of success?

    yes possible and functional 100%

    let him add this from his DNS:
    www IN A 123.123.123.123
    ftp IN A 123.123.123.123
    mail IN A 123.123.123.123
    domain.com. IN A 123.123.123.123
    domain.com. IN MX 0 domain.com.

    and it should work just fine
    replacing 123.123.123.123 with ur hosting IP ofcourse.

    www IN A xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
    ftp IN A xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
    mail IN A xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
    exize.com. IN A xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
    exize.com. IN MX 0 exize.com

    if he adds that it will all work?
