Hi Experts,

I am changing my current ISP. Getting a new IP.
Do I have to coordinate the deletion of the existing PTR (existing ISP) with the creation of the new PTR (new ISP) at the same time?

OR

Can I go ahead and have the new ISP create the new PTR and after migrating to the new IP block then have the old PTR removed?

Thank You!

Yes you can wait until after the migration to remove the old one.  You should however have your new ISP create the PTR record asap, so that when you flip the corresponding A record over you will be good to go.

you can do both.

But, it is better to create the new PTR record before the migration. because it takes time to replicate.

Hi,

sorry for that, but you commants says:
" You should however have your new ISP create the PTR record asap, so that when you flip the corresponding A record over you will be good to go."

asap does not mean, before the migration.

You are right, "asap" does not mean "before the migration", but given the context of my answer, it is implied.

so that when you flip the corresponding A record over you will be good to go.

^ means before the migration.

Context.
