If I want to change IP of my registered NS records, is it possible?

Yes, you can change the IP of your registered NS records. However, you can change the IP only if you're also moving your nameserver to a new server. Essentially, you're updating the location where your nameserver resides.

Changing the IP within the same nameserver is generally not possible. This is because the NS record points to your nameserver's specific location, and an IP change signifies a relocation. Most registrars only allow registering NS records by hostname, not IP address.

Ready to move your nameserver? Let's proceed!

Step 1: Update A Records at the New Server

On your new nameserver, locate the A records associated with your NS records (e.g., ns1.yourdomain.com and ns2.yourdomain.com). Edit these records to reflect the new IP address of your server.

Step 2: Update Nameserver Info at Your Registrar

Log in to your domain registrar's control panel and navigate to your domain's DNS zone management section. Find the existing NS records (e.g., ns1.yourdomain.com and ns2.yourdomain.com). Delete these records and create new NS records with the same hostnames, pointing to the new IP addresses you configured in Step 1.
