  • this really is how it works. Registrars do maintain their own database of nameservers for sanity's sake, and they are a royal pain to change. When I have to change a nameserver's IP, I just create a new nameserver at the registrar and delete the old one once the transition is made. That way, no existing records have to be updated, and I don't have to interact with any people. :)
    • So I found on pairnic! I am /quite/ certain, though, that I did not need to do this in the past (admittedly, a year or more ago) when dealing with my records at Gandi. Perhaps their software was once more intelligent, and had to be altered for some reason.

      The key difference is that with Gandi, getting the information I needed was a serious pain. Pair had it quite easily available in their FAQ, where I found it after a few minutes of looking. There were no days of mental anguish.

      And, I see, now, that dig finds the correct DNS information. I will proceed to ignore my DNS for another four years.
