I have a website hosted with 1and1 and a domain regestered elsewhere. The client wants to keep the domain where it is and point it to the 1and1 webspace. They’ve asked for “the IP address of the web server and they will transfer the A record of the domain to the new IP address” which should be straight forward. I am having trouble finding out this information from 1and1 though and from searches it looks like I’m not the only one.
Do they not allow external domains to point to their webspace. Does anyone know of a way round this? The client doesn’t want the email to be moved which i why it has to stay with them. Moving the site from 1and1 is not an option atm. Thanks
