    My old server initally came with two nameservers with consecutive IP addresses. As some registrars needed (or still need) the nameservers to be on different subnets I ordered additional IPs and set up two new nameservers. But the reseller account I used for my own domains always used the first two nameservers. I plan to replace this server in the next weeks so I thought it would be wise to change the nameservers of these domains to use the same as all the other reseller/domains do.

    I assume I have to do the following:
    - Reseller-Center -> Edit Privileges/Nameserver
    - Add the newer nameservers as Nameserver 3 and 4.
    - Save All Settings
    - Add the newer nameservers to all domains at the registrar.
    - Don't know if I have to wait some time (48 hours). I assume not.
    - Remove the initial nameservers from all domains at the registrar.
    - Don't know if I have to wait some time (48 hours).
    - Remove the initial nameservers in Reseller Center -> Edit Privileges/Nameserver

    Is this correct? As I have enough time I can wait between the changes.
