Changing hosting provider without downtime


Recommended Posts

I'm wanting to change hosting provide but I dont know how to change it without any downtime. Any help is appreciated. Also, since I'll change hosts, I need to point my domain names to the new nameservers. So, do I have to edit the MX entries to point to Google Apps again or would it be retained?


Just FYI, I'm switching from Linode to Web Faction.

Straight from webfaction.com

Once you have a domain name, you can use your domain registrar’s website to point your domain name to WebFaction’s domain name servers:


    Name Server IP Address





I suppose the MX records will automatically update when the domain moves to the nameserver.

Regardless, the MX question is covered in the above link.
