    DNS issues, need some help

    ok, here is the situation.

    Have these hosted with old web host (Web Host A):
    - mydomain.com
    - mydomain2.com

    Just got VPS at the new web host (Web Host B):
    - new web host assigned 2 IP addresses for DNS use:
    - ns1.mydomain.com
    - ns2.mydomain.com

    Added these Host Summary in Registrar:
    - ns1.mydomain.com
    - ns2.mydomain.com

    Note: mydomain.com is still being hosted at Web Host A.

    Pointed mydomains.com DNS to:
    - ns1.mydomain.com
    - ns2.mydomain.com

    This is causing some issues at DNS report and various resolution issues. Could it be that in order for other domains to begin fully using the new name servers:
    - ns1.mydomain.com
    - ns2.mydomain.com

    mydomain.com needs to pointed DNS to:
    - ns1.mydomain.com
    - ns2.mydomain.com

    Before anyother domains can use them?

    Hope that make sense.

    No, your mydomain.com doesn't need to be pointed to :

    - ns1.mydomain.com
    - ns2.mydomain.com

    But what you need, is to configure your your NS records to point to the rights IPs. The domaine itself can be hosted where you want.

    I am still a bit lost. Can you provide some detailed steps & info as to what I need to do? I can follow instructions but need a little help getting things in order. Just in case, my registrar is godaddy.com.

    TIA!

    You just need to do following:
    1. Register your custom DNS:
    ns1.mydomain.com
    ns2.mydomain.com
    via your domain name registrar account
    2. Wait 2-3 days while the DNS zone is propagating
    3. When 3 days are passed you can use your custom nameservers


    There are no any difference where your original domain name mydomain.com is pointed to. Just make sure you pointed your custom DNS servers to the proper IPs.

    That will be nice to give us the exact domain name, so we could check it via DNSREPORT and say what you did wrong.

    Also, check this page:

    I think it will be useful for you. It explains how to register your own DNS via GoDaddy.
