first post over here.
Until yesterday I had a virtual shop working in a VPS webhost site, but because of the quality of service it was decided to move the whole webapp to another webhost, in a dedicated host plan, so theorically, I have whole control over both OS (
Debian Squeeze and
Debian Wheezy) configuration files, including the DNS service,
BIND. I was guessing the transfer process of the domain (used by the virtual shop) was as simple as copy the DNS configuration files from one webhost to other, stop one bind9 service and start the other
But just to be sure, I asked to technical support of the new webhosting, and they told me that I had to change the DNS servers for the ones they used (obviously, besides the IP addresses), "easy cake" I thought, and just to be sure (once again) I sent them both Resource Record files for checking, the anwser was "you ought make that change in the domain register, if you don't control the register, you should make contact with the provider where you did register it.".
named-checkzone in both RR returns OK, but
nslookup returns with error messages (as it was expected). The DNS domain was acquired by the company long before I got in, so I got no idea about any domain registers (and seems as the owner of the company doesn't any clue neither).
So, considering I'm using a dedicated server, there's anything else I should do about it in order to re-activate the DNS domain? (using the new IP address) or there's something that technical support got to do to complete the task? How many days I have to wait for?
Thanks in advanced to everybody.
