Setup NS Records for Subdomain

If you want to serve DNS for a subdomain while keeping most of the DNS records to do with its domain with another DNS provider you need NS records.

On the nameserver for

somesubdomain			NS
somesubdomain			NS
somesubdomain			NS
somesubdomain			NS

On the nameserver for you just need a “normal” A record (+CNAME/MX/whatever):

somesubdomain			A

I have this setup working with providing most of my DNS but linode providing DNS for the sites I have moved off my old providers and on to linode.

The previously wonderful everydns that served me well for many years (for nothing!) has been bought up and is going paid in less than 90 days so I’m taking this opportunity to move things around.
