I bought a domain via Dreamhostapps (which is apparently different than Dreamhost...god knows why)
I go into Dreamhostapps and change the NS to my GoDaddy hosted nameservers.
Says that It accepted the change, takes 15 minutes but many days to propagate on the net....understandable.
Check back in 2-3 hours and the application says I still am using dreamhost name servers.
Rinse and repeat, have done this twice now.
