I was wondering....

I have a site that google has indexed. I decided that the brand and domain name were not good so I pointed a domain to the name servers.

Does that mean that from now on google will recognise and begin to index the new domain?

(Hope that makes sense!)

Have you just pointed another domain, or have you switched domwiain? If you have multiple domains pointing to the one lot of content, then that can cause duplication issues. If you want to change domain name, then you should do it properly, and place a 301 redirect match on the old domain, to the new domain.

If you just parked both domains then there's no way for the search engines to know which you want to use.
