I have followed the instructions in the most recent Support article about delegating DNS:
but so far the entries I made are not working.
I need to delegate Nameservers for the subdomain “News” to ns1.nevermindthedns.com and ns2.nevermindthedns.com and have added NS records for the subdomain for each name server to the zone file as per the instructions. There are no other DNS entries for the subdomain “news” although there are plenty of entries for the root domain and www as they are using Office 365 and Mandrill.
If I do a dig lookup on the subdomain using Kloth http://www.kloth.net/services/dig.php and specify Cloudflare’s nameserver brett.ns.cloudflare.com it shows the correctly delegated new nameservers as the authority ones, but if I do the lookup elsewhere eg on google’s nameserver 126.96.36.199 it shows no NS records existing.
Is this a propagation issue and all I need to do is wait, or have I made a mistake and should be doing the delegation differently eg by using this method Main domain with CloudFlare, delegate sub domain to another DNS server
