    Maybe, just maybe the new NS IP is blacklisted by Google.

    Nameservers rarely get blacklisted, but it happens. Did the actual IP stay the same?

    It wasn't the change of name servers that caused the drop in rankings. You need to investigate more into the root cause of the drop.

    I imagine the chances of Google blacklisting servers is so incredibly rare, particularly for shared hosting, that it effectively doesn't even exist.

    If they are coming back then you should be ok, probably just have Google a temporary scare lol

    I've had this happen to me before when moving a site from a VPS to cloud hosting via the same hosting provider. I saw the rankings go back to normal within a few weeks.
