    * Switching to my own nameservers

    Hello,
    I will soon be in the process of switching my hosting from GoDaddy to an unmanaged, VPS host. I will be running a nameserver on that host for my website as well as a few others that I will soon be hosting. Currently, I am using GoDaddy's name servers for my domain/hosting with them. I see several DNS records on GoDaddy (2 A records, several CNAME, a few MX as well as a text record). From what I understand, once I change the nameservers on that domain to MY nameservers, the records that exist on GoDaddy will be meaningless. Is that correct?

    I understand that these records live on the nameserver however I have read that GoDaddy uses DDNS and I do not fully understand that so I am not sure if there are any differences between that and the traditional DNS system.

    Thank you for your time.

    Yes, You are correct.
    Those nameservers would be existing with godaddy. I think you can request them to remove that. Not sure whether they would help on that.

    If you change the nameservers to "ns1/ns2.somethingelse.com", then the DNS for your domain will be hosted by "ns1/ns2.somethinglese.com".

    So if you are going to be managing the "ns1/ns2.somethingelse.com" and you are asking this kind of question... then you might want to rethink things and maybe *not* host your own nameservers (and DNS).

    Unmanaged VPS? better keep the DNS with GoDaddy or else once the DNS server on your VPS is down, all your services will be affected. If it's a managed one, you can consider having your own DNS and you can change the nameservers to the ones you wish.
