Because of the recent problems, I need to move to a new host. I feel bad about it because Dreamhost has been good to me in the past but I can't take all the downtime. Hopefully, things will get better in the future and I can move back, but for now I have to go.
Anyway, I signed up with a new host and need to change my nameservers from the Dreamhost ones to new ones. I'd really appreciate some help on how to do that. I went into the Web Admin Panel, Domains, Manage Domains, [DNS], and clicked on "Go here to modify domain.com's whois record". Then I scrolled down to the bottom were it says "Hosting your domain elsewhere?" and filled in the new nameservers. I clicked "Set these nameservers for this domain". I got an email asking to confirm the change and I did that. But that was a few hours ago and it seems nothing has changed. The nameservers shown by Dreamhost seem to be the same as before (ns1.dreamhost.com, ns2.dreamhost.com, ns3.dreamhost.com.) instead of the new ones. Whois still shows the old nameservers too. I know it probably takes a few days for the change to propagate over the net but I would expect the new nameservers to show up on Dreamshost right away. Did I do something wrong or is there more I need to do? Thanks in advance for any help.
