Migrating Our Public-Facing DNS Name Servers

Hello,

Currently we are hosting our own public facing name servers on premises with three Windows Server 2003 machines.

We would like to our domain registrar (Network Solutions) to take care of hosting the names servers. Changing the name servers from their side is pretty simple. We will just have to re-enter any external DNS entries.

However, we would just like to know if there's anything we will need to do with the on-premises name servers to revoke their authority? Or if because we're making the change on our registrar's site, any requests would never hit those on-premises servers anyway once we perform the cut over.

We appreciate any help that can be offered.

Thanks!

No, I do not think you need to do anything special other than removing the DNS service and/or servers to stop them from being looked at by external users.
