Host our company's website

We used to host our company's website till we had a client's server crash and we gave them our web server, which by the way I was not present when the other techs did this. They had no ideal the server they gave them was our web server, so that being said I have built a new web server using Server Standard 2008. We also have SBS 2008, it is our AD & DC server, the standard 2008 is running IIS & DNS on it and I have configured the Forward & Reverse Lookup Zones along with the A Records and gave it a static IP Address.
During this time period our company had it's public IP Address changed twice, we used to use Verizon but now we are with Frontier. When I do a nslookup on our domain name it is still pointing to our old static iP Address. I want to point our website to the new static IP Address I have tried going to our account on Network Solution, who we registered our domain with but when I go to change the Name Servers I am no longer sure who our new Name Servers are with. Can anyone help me with find out how to get this information?

Thank you.

if you go to http://www.networksolutions.com/whois/ and enter your domain name (for example, I entered www.experts-exchange.com.  

The first field said:
Current Registrar:  NETWORK SOLUTIONS, LLC.

So EE registered their domain through NS.  And it works with others.  I checked a domain issued through DirectI and the results was: DIRECTI INTERNET SOLUTIONS PVT. LTD. D/B/A PUBLICDOMAINREGISTRY.COM

But you will also see who is the technical / administrative contact, etc.  If these email addresses are still valid, will be a little easier to get you into this account.  When I needed to get into an account (but this was over a decade ago, NS required my information on my company letterhead, which was easy enough to provider)

IPNetInfo from Nirsoft http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/ipnetinfo.html can tell you who owns the IP address.  You should be able to get the nameservers from them.

using the IPNetInfo program allowed me to found out who was our name server is. It is a very useful tool and I plan to use for a long time.
