    Ugh i don't see how/why there would be any, but this is because nameservers take anywhere from 48-96 hours to propigate, an usual of 48 hours. So it wouldn't be like "auto" switching.

    jsut looked at zone edit

    It seems like, we have to give our domain name and they
    wil maintain domain name with their name server?

    is it correct?

    this is zonedit do

    Wheat they do is, zoneedit.com

    They maintain the name server and they will give us a script
    that has to be installed in our machine whenever ip changes
    the scripts will inform new ip to zoneedit.com... and it will
    point it to new ip.

    thanks

    It IS possible to have name servers with dynamic IP.

    - get a hostname with dynamic IP address, there are several parties that are offering it for free like dyndns.org and dhs.org, zoneedit is fine, but you will need another domain for your nameserver. Let's say this hostname is called 'example.dhs.org' and 'example.dyndns.org'

    - install BIND or whatever DNS server on the dynamic IP.

    - register your domain to use example.dhs.org and example.dyndns.org as the nameserver. This is the trickiest part since most registrars assume nameservers IP addresses are static, and require at least two nameservers with different IPs

    Don't most registrars require you to use a registered name server? You can't register example.dhs.org or example.dyndns.org as a name server.

    It depends, some registrars like register.com do this automatically for you. All you have to do is set a few domains domain name servers as the domain name servers you want to use. They will the register your domain name servers as domain name servers and make it global.

    Others like, verisign require you to register the domain name server with them (or they used to).

    We setup a few accounts with register.com and used our dns; it took a few times of telling it what name server and IP Address. Eventually, register.com registered the name server information. It took about a week of seting up accounts on register.com to stop asking for the IP Address. Now our DNS will load without error on all systems (that we have checked).
