    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 : which is up and working and has its own domain name servers.

    Now, i want to have a subdomain : , 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 :
    Name :
    Type : NS - Name Server
    Values :

    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 :

    in  [B]Edit DNS Zone[/B]
    Add New Entries Below this Line
    ---------------------------------------    14400  IN  NS    14400  IN  NS    14400  IN  NS    14400  IN  NS
    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.
