The way it works is this:
- - the owner/admin for the domain changes the domain name servers
assigned for this domain through the registrar that holds the domain.
This can normally be done using a web interface at the registrar.
Someone at ZC must do this, and he needs a IP/hostname for the
primary DNS server and IPs/hostnames for secondaries
- - The zone data is pulled from the old servers and entered into the
new primary. This zone data must reflect the new DNS primary/
secondaries. Whenever the primary is updated, it will contact all the
secondaries it knows about automatically and ask them to reload the
- - The secondaries need to have their configuration changed so that
they know they are secondaries for zope.org. They also need to know
the IP of the primary. They will then automatically fetch zone data
from the primary.
Apart from the first step this is quick and easy to do.
