I’m recently moved from another host provider to DigitalOcean. In the previous host company I had configure a subdomain pointing to an application hosted on DigitalOcean, and in the previous provider I had configured Google Apps for email on my main website.
Now I’ve moved my main website to DigitalOcean to the best of my knowledge I configured the DNS settings correctly in the DigitalOcean DNS control panel for the main website, and I created a submain and added the Google Apps settings as well.
Of course, I’ve also change the nameservers on my registrar to make the switch. Now everything seems to be working OK, including website, subdomain, and Google Apps.
My question is that for a few more weeks I still have the old hosting service, where I didn’t change any of the settings, so I’m still wondering if after switching the nameservers to point the main website to the droplet on DigitalOcean, all my services (website, subdomain, and Google Apps) settings are being pull from the DigitalOcean DNS control panel?
I wouldn’t want to delete the old hosting provider account to find out that my subdomain and Google Apps stop working because I didn’t configure DigitalOcean DNS settings correctly and the settings were getting pull from the old provider.
