Forums -> Domain Name Help -> Setting A records before transfer completes

I am in the process of transferring a domain name to Dynadot. It is a domain name used for an active website.

Due to peculiar hosting settings, the hosting of the domain is not determined by the standard DNS, but by A records. The DNS are those of the registrar.

In order to prevent an interruption in the online availability of the website, is there any way for me to set the A records for that domain name in my Dynadot before the transfer completes?

OK, in that case I have been able to insert the A records immediately after the transfer completed, thus I had no issue. But the question remains, since I may not always be able to do the same.

Hi there, while a domain is in the pendingTransfer status, the DNS can not be altered, and so unfortunately, we don't have a way for you to edit or add DNS to a domain prior to it's transfer completion.
I hope that helps, thanks!

Really truly? We have to transfer the domain, wait for the client's server and email to break and then rush in and update the domain? That is just bonkers

If the domain is using third-party name severs, the sever will be kept during the transfer. You can manage the domain that needs transfer using name severs.

Thanks. That is what I have done.
