Ok, with most companies, its a very simple change. If 123 were running
the server and they arent now, there maybe a small fee to get them to
pay some geek to alter a line in their DNS text file to say
www.myhost.com is now 1.2.3.4 rather than 1.2.3.1 as an IP address,
but it shouldnt fry your brain..

if it does, 123 are crap :)
