    What is the best way to migrate some DNS-Only machines to new ones that are also on different machines. I want to give my clients some time to adjust their nameservers, but I want to get the other machines going and the old ones turned off.

    For example, I have ns1.somedomain.com and ns2.somedomain.com. This using my legacy web hosting domain. I want to migrate from my cheap linux boxes over to some VPS's and move to ns1.differentdomain.com and ns2.differentdomain.com.

    So this was my steps to migrate... I have no idea if it will work or not.

    1. Setup new VPS accounts for my two new nameservers
    2. Set the host in godaddy for differentdomain.com to point the ns1 and ns2 for the new IP addresses of the new VPS accounts
    3. Setup the DNS-Only installations on the new VPS accounts to have ns1 and ns2 of both differentdomain.com and somedomain.com
    4. Wait 48 hours for the new ns1 and ns2 to work.
    5. Change my cPanel installation to use the new nameservers and the old ones
    6. Wait a few hours
    7. Change the host in godaddy for somedomain.com to point to the IPs that ns1 and ns2 are using on the differentdomain.com

    Should that work?
