Hey everyone... I'm new here, so be kind. ;)
I've had my email and website hosted in the same place for years. I'm creating a new website on a different platform (probably SquareSpace) and when that's ready, I want to cancel my current hosting, and therefore 'delete' the old website and run with the new one, again, most likely SquareSpace. My email is also hosted (if that's the correct term?) with the current web host and uses a mydomainname.com format.
That's the background info. From what I understand, I can have Google Apps for Business 'host' my email. First of all, is this what I need in order to access my email (I use Mac Mail as my email client) still using mydomainname.com email address? Secondly, if I do this, does this mean that if I ever change my web host in the future, that I won't have to change my email and simply continue using it through Google Apps for Business? I'm looking for a long-term solution for me email that I don't have to change whenever I change hosts for the website. Hopefully I'll never do it again, but never say never, right!?
AND, if all that is correct... what's the procedure to move my email from an existing host (the domain name is registered with Network Solutions - but hosted elsewhere (Bell Canada if you need to know) and set it up with GAFB?
