I have an existing website at a domain that is also used for our corporate email and other Google apps integrations. The DNS hosting is currently handled by Rackspace, but I want to move the nameservers to point to CloudFlare to take advantage of the speed and security optimization. I think I have a pretty good handle on what is needed to ensure that the website continues to function, but the Google apps part isn’t as clear and it would be bad if people couldn’t send or receive email for even a minute. I didn’t initially set up the Google Apps account and do not have access to that panel. Web and IT are two separate departments at my company.
When I put the domain into CF, it appears that the necessary DNS records are being pulled in correctly. Is it really as seamless and updating the nameservers at the registrar from this point? Are there any other “gotcha’s” with Google Apps I should be aware of?
Thanks in advance.
