Domain Name and DNS Hosting - whats the best one

At the moment I use 123reg to host my domain names. They allow you to update your A, MX for a domain. But what I need to do is to delegate a subdomain to another DNS/name server server.

So instead of having a A record to make subdomain.customer.com resolve to an IP address, subdomain.customer.com has an NS record that points to ns1.ecircle.de

My current dns server cannot do this, so I'm looking for DNS servers out there that will allow me to do this.

I was sent the following help file in order to do this
-----

Delegation means creating NS records for "subdomain" within the zone "customer.com". By delegation our nameservers get authority over the subdomain “subdomain.customer.com”.

BIND-Example for the “customer.com” zone file:

(...)
subdomain       IN      NS      ns1.ecircle.de.
                   IN      NS      ns2.ecircle.de.
(...)

I think a dns service like www.web-dns.co.uk will allow you to forward subdomains to other name servers.

Thanks I will have a look at them.

But how exactly do I point a record? Don't really understand the website?!

You'd create your subdomain with NS records pointing to the name servers responsible for handling that subdomain.
