This covers transfers:
Transfers

The DNS records will more with no issue, but remember that the IP address will more than likely have to change since its going onto another server with its own IP addresses. Your DC might be able to move it.

Hello :)

The custom entries should migrate to the new server during the transfer. However, you can make a backup of the DNS Zone before initiating the transfer with a command such as:

Code:
cp -a /var/named/domain.com.db /root/domain.com.db
Then, transfer the account, and review the backed up zone to see which records were not copied over during the transfer. You can then review the old zone as a reference when manually editing the new DNS zone.

Thank you.

So where you have put domain.com i put the actually domain ? also where will it back the file up to.
Right, you would replace "domain.com" in the example with the actual domain name (ensure you include the .db suffix). The example command I provided backs up the zone to "/root/domain.com.db".

Thank you.
