If I have a domain registered with a provider (for example Go Daddy). But the name servers pointing to another domain provider (for example, then I change the name servers at a domain registrar (Go Daddy) to either the registrar (Go Daddy) or another domain provider (123-Reg), and there is a problem can they be switched back to the previous name servers ( and start working again. Or once the change is made the link is severed?

    You can point it where ever you would like but it can take a full 24 hours to propagate throughout the internet fully. I wouldn't be too hasty about calling it a failure.

    if you revert the nameservers, the DNS will be hadled by the namesevrer provider. It takes some time to take effect but you wont loose any settings from the old provider
