    First off all I hope I am in the right forum if not please forgive me.

    I am moving my server setup from my home to a datacenter. No problem here (I hope).
    I have at the moment setup my nameservers with dyndns so they are &

    Now with my new server I want to use my own primary nameserver as explained in this howto.

    So here finally my question: If I am going to chance the nameserver at dyndns to wil I lose my connection for a wile or as I suspect and hoping will the site be reachable by the second nameserver witch is still

    So basically what I am guessing is that as long I have one nameserver up and running I can chance the other one and keep the connection to the sites up.

    As long as all nameservers have identical records (i.e., you don't change any records while you're switching to a new nameserver), everything should be fine.
