Topic: Hosting question

Hey,

Im a newbie when it comes with hosting. I want to move a website with a .nl domain name

www.example.nl

And i want to move my host to heroku.com so to url example.heroku.com but i would like that the url stays www.example.nl

Do i have to send an email to my current hosting provider that they have to move the DNS to example.heroku.com and thats it?

Thanks in advance!

Re: Hosting question

Heroku has some good docs on how to configure a custom domain name, as well as a screencast:

http://docs.heroku.com/custom-domains

Basically, you need to create a CNAME record for your domain that points to proxy.heroku.com - I'm sure your Hosting/DNS provider can help you out.
