Well, I want my Google Apps (GAFYD) account to be able to use Google Talk with other users (using Federation) besides Gmail and GAFYD (ex: Twitter, Meebo, etc). To do this, you need to add SRV records to your DNS (http://www.google.com/support/a/bin/answer.py?answer=34143) – no problem right?
Well, my current hosting (hostmysite) doesn’t allow SRV records, so after going at it with Tech Support the answer was to "switch to another DNS provider". Yikes. My current registar is active-domain, which doesn’t support SRV records either (from what I can tell). GoDaddy does, so I will transfer my domain there. Another no problem, right?
I initiate the transfer from active-domain to GoDaddy, but then read in the FAQ on active-domain I have to manually request to be transferred to get the auth code. Still waiting for that. Then I will have to make sure GoDaddy is set up as active-domain was so my stuff still works. Then, I can finally change GoDaddy to run all the DNS for the domain instead of just pointing to hostmysite’s nameservers.
I tell ya, nothing can be easy. 🙂
