Working on web site for local organization. Three emails to GoDaddy support return same response (below). Correct that I cannot arbitrarly chose 'Custom Nameservers' value?

Local organization Nameservers were (with GoDaddy): NS1.POWERWEB.NET, NS1POWERDNS.COM; point to non-GoDaddy site

Sample GoDaddy name servers:

Nameserver1: NS55.DOMAINCONTROL.COM
Nameserver2: NS56.DOMAINCONTROL.COM

What values do I use?

Thanks for your help.

Cheers, Jim Lacey

You can use whatever DNS you like, but you have to be "allowed" to use it...ie. pay for it.  Does that make sence?

HI,
you have registered your domain with godday. and my understanding is, you are trying to host you web site from another company .

in that case you need to change the name server from godaddy to other hosting company

find out what name server of your hosting company,
it would be like this ns1.hostingcompany.com and ns2.hostingcompany.com

just delete the nameserver of godday and enter the nameserver address of your hosting company.

and it will take 48 to 72 hrs to propagate

let me know if i am wrong

I opted for 'host on our (GoDaddy) servers' -  received email about servers:
NS51.DOMAINCONTROL.COM
NS52.DOMAINCONTROL.COM

I will wait 48-72 hours and hope.
