I changed my domain's nameservers, but I don't think the change was processed correctly. Can anyone help me understand the result below "AFTER"? In my registrant's control panel, I change the name servers from
ns1.secure.net (etc.) to
ns1.linode.com (etc.). But, after the changed, it looked like the DNS was pointed nowhere at all.
Is this a normal in-between state during the process of nameserver changeover, or does this mean that the new nameservers were not correctly assigned?

(For the time being, I have changed the nameservers back to
ns1.secure.net, so if you run
dig yourself now, you'll see "BEFORE".)
More detail about how I got here:
- A previous developer registered the domain with MelbourneIT.
- I transferred the registration to active-domain. The DNS settings carried over.
- Having trouble getting the
wwwsubdomain to work with the nameservrs, I tried to point the nameservers to Linode.
- The site "went down" and, as you can see, the DNS pointed nowhere.
