The X.509 certificate standard has catered for this for a long time now with a feature known as Subject Alternative Names.Basically this allows a single SSL certificate to be configured with a primary name and then multiple alternative names, making it valid for all of the required names that clients and other servers will be connecting to.I'm not positive but I thought that might cause I problem so I deleted the other WWW record.Might cause problems if you had the same subdomain pointing to two different destinations.Has anyone had experience and/or no-downtime migration to Go Daddy at all? And during this "afterwards" phase, the emails are rejected (as the domain is already pointing to GD, which is "pending" for some reason).
Windows Server 2008 Certificate Services supports SAN certificates by default, however Windows Server 2003 requires the option to be manually enabled first.I've just transfer my custom domain over to Go Daddy to do my DNS and domain management there.Since I no longer had a hosting plan with Host Gator, only a domain management plan, it seems they would not allow me to add custom A records to my domain, which is critical to getting Blogger to work with a custom domain.So even if you set up everything on Go Daddy's side, the email account's status will still show "Pending Setup: validating MX record" for quite a while, rejecting all incoming email.After updating nameservers, the website will be accessible very quickly, but all email will be rejected with e.g.: "188.1_does_not_like_recipient./Remote_host_said:[email protected]/Giving_up_on_188.1./" It seems as though the account won't accept any email until it "receives" the correct MX records from a domain, and they say it can take up to 48 hours (which is especially absurd especially as they be both registrar and provider in this case). But the catch was - GD will be showing "Pending Setup: validating MX record" before you update nameservers for a domain, and afterwards as well.In the fields I entered: Name: mail Data: 2.20 Done. If you use an external mail agency, they may suggest other values, in which case, follow their advice. Now we only need to wait for the DNS records to propagate.However, it would be nice to check the records are correct and we haven't made a typo somewhere.So I signed up at Go Daddy and initiated the domain transfer. Clicking on some confirmation emails, entering some keys that were emailed to me to verify that I owned the email account associated with the domain, unlocking my domain at Host Gator, talk to Host Gator chat support and getting them to send me an authorization code to approve the transfer.Then I just had to wait a day or two until I received an email from Host Gator saying the domain was ready to be transferred and asking me to click a button to approve it.And during this "afterwards" phase, the emails are rejected (as the domain is already pointing to GD, which is "pending" for some reason).(Luckily I have an "extra" domain to play with before moving the big ones.)I'm not sure I understand the situation in detail, but you can have more than one MX record, with different priorities (likely, you can set this up at your current host via the control panel).
