    Ok, I am using the 15 days trial and something has been bugging me really bad.
    I just can't make the nameserver thing work.

    I read lot of stuff and nothing.

    I registered my domain with DreamHost (DH), but I have my main domain at RackSpace (RS).
    Subdomains are still at DH.
    I did set up on RS DNS panel all IPs for the subdomains at DH and email too.

    I went to DH DNS panel and changed the nameserver to RS DNS.
    So I decided to create my own nameserver.

    I already tried to use and using RS DNS IPs at cPanel.
    Also on DH panel, under nameserver 1 and 2, I wrote ns1 and
    Created these custom:
    Record ( zone) Type Value
    ns1 A IP (RS cloud server IP)
    ns1 NS

    Same thing for ns2.

    Before I had all setup for RS DNS and it wasn't working.
    Now I am using my cloud server IP and see if it will work.
    DH said everything is working fine (the nameserver).
    I am waiting for the new nameserver and my cloud IP to propagate.

    But on WHM the domain zone looks fine, all IPs are correct, if I change any nameserver IP, it changes on the DNS zone.

    I just don't know what to do anymore. lol

    Any help?
