Testing DNS records is easy once you know how.  However, it is a task that that might never be completed by many in computing as once setup it rarely needs changing. 

However, such testing is usually only necessary where the domain being tranferred has custom DNS records (if the domain to be transferred will use hosting and email on the new target server there is no need for these tests).

We can assist if you are a client.  Please contact us.


To test the DNS, which is very useful prior to changing the nameservers:

Open a command prompt and type:

server _IP_
set domain=_YOUR_DOMAIN_

(where _YOUR_DOMAIN_ the domain name being tested, and _IP_ is the ip address of the server where the DNS records are stored - use the ip of the new nameserver)

then to test a new sub-domain type in its name, ie. www, and it will reply with the new record if all is well.
