Reversing Name Server Change

kiloelectronvolt

If I have a domain registered with a provider (for example Go Daddy). But the name servers pointing to another domain provider (for example register.com), 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 (register.com) 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
