comment Using multiple A-records for my domain - do web browsers ever try more than one?
Sorry, but I don't think that's how it works. Browsers have nothing to do with resolving IP addresses -- that happens in system software. If you provide multiple A records, you should assume that any given client will receive a random one from the list.

WHY must StackExchange remove line breaks in comments? Does it want to be FacePlant when it grows up?

comment DNS propogation question with name server change
Yea, if the A record is identical, I agree that there should be no downtime if the old nameserver is still functional. <p>But @Brian said he was required to delete the old nameserver, which might give "name not found" errors while the root servers were being updated. I think requiring that old nameservers be deleted was totally unreasonable in this case.
