That makes good sense Neil, especially as I am quite the n00b when it
comes to server admin. So rather than changing the nameserver settings
in my domain registrars control panel I would set it to use their
nameservers and add DNS records for mail and web by hand via their
website? Glad to know that's an option, sounds like it beats messing
round with bind when I'm not entirely sure what I'm doing!
