Move domain DNS records from Godaddy to Azure with no downtime

Mohamad Dbouk 1 Reputation point

We are a software company with more than 200 clients, each client has a webapp and a sql database hosted on Azure. each webapp is linked to a custom domain / subdomain. Our domain is managed in Godaddy and all the DNS records are set there. We need to move all DNS records to Azure in order to keep control of everything in one place, but we are afraid that it will cause us a downtime or some failure.

Our clients are from different time zone, so anytime we will do it, some of them will be affected (in case of downtime)

The procedure will be as following:

  1. Export all DNS records from Godaddy
  2. Import the DNS records using ARM template
  3. Change Godaddy nameservers to point to Azure nameservers zone

My question is, are we going to face any downtime or failure when moving the DNS? and in case of failure, what can we do?
