    main domain: mysite.com
    ip address of mysite.com: 1.1.1.1
    registered nameserver: 1.1.1.1 ns1.mysite.com
    customer nameservers point to: ns1.mysite.com

    If I change the IP address of mysite.com to 1.1.1.2, will the existing nameserver still work at 1.1.1.1? If not, what needs to be done to ensure that it will continue to work?

    Changing your main sites IP won't affect the nameservers, and therefore, won't affect the other accounts.

    Ok, so ns1.mysite.com should still have the old IP after doing "change site's IP address" in whm .

    If the change IP script is working as it should, it shouldn't change the nameservers IP. You should just check to make sure, and if it did change it, just change that one back.

    Just check the /var/named/ns1.mysite.com file afterwards to make sure. If it did change the IP there, just change it back. If that file doesn't exist, it means the ns1 entry would be in the /var/named/mysite.com file instead.

    I have done the same as you before and didn't have any trouble, but it won't hurt to double check that file after the change.

    If you are a reseller and don't have access to the /var/named files, it might be better to have your host change your IP.
