    If you've previously created a nameserver under a domain name with Nominet, but in future that nameserver changes IP address (for example, if you move it to a new server, change the IP etc.) you can't update it by re-adding it, as it appears to use the old IP as if it is cached. Does anybody know a workaround for this other than changing the nameserver hostname which is not feasible.

    Login / Web Domain Manager / Manage Domains / Click the domain in question / Nameservers Section / Click the NS in question / Modify NS

    Is that what you are after?

    Only if you own the domain that has the nameserver go to

    Web Domain Manager
    Manage Domains
    Click Domain which is on this nameserver
    Click the nameserver

    You should be able to modify it there provided the domain is your own.

    Let me know how it goes.

    Perfect Darren,

    Thanks a lot for that. It's been bugging me for some time now across many projects. It's not immediately obvious either, which makes it hard to find.

    Thanks again as well to @ELIFE-MZ & @stevelook2 both on the right path.
