Besides branding when you decide to move from one server to another or move host you don’t want to contact all of your clients and request them to change new name servers. If you change your server, all you need to do is update the IP’s of your private name servers. The Clients will start moving to the new servers as soon as the name server IP addresses are updated. The domains begin propagating to the new server as soon as you update your name server’s IP addresses.
