Not a current problem, asking for input for a planned change.
What should I worry about?
I've been connected to the net via slip and my ISP "jvnc" for
several years. Thus I can be contacted via email at:
But only jgcomp.jvnc.net is a valid site for other uses. i.e.
jgcomp.com is only and MX record, for telnet ... jgcomp.jvnc.net
must be used.
I have several systems on my local net AND I have a properly
registered domain jgcomp.com. However my ISP will not route
traffic to jgcomp.com without a serious upgrade in service and
price. Only email via the MX record.
So, I'm looking for an alternative ISP. One who will use my
registered domain. During setup with a new ISP I'm concerned
about name conflicts. I hope to run both connections for a
What will happen to email (etc.) if there is an MX record
directing it to my current ISP and a domain record directing
it to my new ISP? Will I also have to ask for mail to go to
a specific machine within my domain rather than the current
system where there is essentially only one connected machine?
BTW during the test period the two connections will be through
two different systems, jg1 to one ISP and dutch to the other.
