In DNS can an IN NS point to a CNAME?
I am in the process of migrating hosting providers. Currently I have significant number of domains pointed at my current NS servers. My new provider has their own NS server that I will need to update all my hosted domains to in order for them to point to the new server.
As updating a few hundred domains with new NS records is going to take a LONG time I was wondering if it was possible to point my current NS records at the new hosts NS's using CNAMES?
ns1.myns.com => CNAME => ns1.newns.com
ns2.myns.com => CNAME => ns2.newns.com
All domains that are currently pointing to ns1.myns.com would then actually be pointing to ns1.newns.com where the DNS records have been mirrored and are correctly pointing to the new servers IP.
Does that make sense? Will this work?
