    Question Domain Name Servers

    Hello! Pardon me if this is in the wrong section. I am very new in domain and web hosting world. I had a simple question and I have different people telling me different things so not sure...

    Is it possible to have different company name servers on a domain? For example my current Web Hosting Company A has ns1.companyA.com & ns2.companyA.com and the New XYZ Company has ns0.xyzcompany.com and ns1.xyzcompany.com. Now on my domain control panel for name server can I add all 4 of them? Both hosting companies will have website files.

    The issue is...I am transition to a different hosting company to avoid downtime for replication is it possible to add the new NS servers in advance so after 72 hours I remove ns1/ns2.companyA.com.

    I was thinking of setting the name servers in this format on the domain control panel.

    Current Host: ns1.companyA.com
    New Host: ns0.xyzcompany.com
    Current Host: ns2.companyA.com
    New Host: ns1.xyzcompany.com

    Any thoughts? Thanks in advance for your help

    Yes, you can add new nameservers name in domain, if there is option to add upto 4 nameservers. But don't forget to remove old one.

    Just do not move content from your old web hosting account for at least 48 hours after changing name servers and everything will be fine.
