Hello

In Amazon Doman DNS Service (route53) i was able to add doman name servers to my subdomains.

Now i want to do same in WHM but i could not figure it out.

For example i have a domain : mydomain.com which is up and working and has its own domain name servers.

Now, i want to have a subdomain : report.mydomain.com , and i have three domain name servers for it and i want this subdomain to use those.

in AWS i was able to do add a record set like this :
Code:
Name : report.mydomain.com

Type : NS - Name Server

Values :  ns1.amazon.com
              ns2.amazon.org
              ns3.amazon.net
              ns4.amazon.co.uk

but in WHM, i dont know how to add different name servers only to my subdomain.

I tried to do it in this way but didnt work :

Code:
in  [B]Edit DNS Zone[/B]

Add New Entries Below this Line
---------------------------------------
report.mydomain.com    14400  IN  NS  ns1.amazon.com
report.mydomain.com    14400  IN  NS  ns2.amazon.org
report.mydomain.com    14400  IN  NS  ns3.amazon.net
report.mydomain.com    14400  IN  NS  ns4.amazon.co.uk
it doesnt seem true, is it?

how can i use external dns for my subdomain though?

Hello :)

Have you tried creating a separate DNS Zone for the subdomain after removing it's entry in the DNS Zone of the domain name it's associated with?

Thank you.
