I have a lesson from the field that will save you from losing access to your email if your domain host goes offline or another calamity visits your desktop. Here is what happened. I was working with one of my traffic services clients last night to help him get an e-commerce site online overnight in a pinch. So it was about one in the morning and we decided to transfer his DNS Settings for his domain to a new host and FTP the site. What we hadn’t considered is that his email would go offline until the transfer process was complete quoting 24 to 72 hours. The problem is that he is receiving between 30 to 50 new order per day through email – yikes!
