So I have now learned that in addition to changing your nameservers with your registrar you also have to register the nameservers with your registrar.  This process is not very easy since there are no clear directions on your registrars website.

After some digging I found mine at Name.com.  Believe me, it was not in an obvious location in large noticeable fonts. 

So, that was last night.  Now I will wait for propagation to see what happens.

they can be a hassle..

btw, you have a TYPO in your records to begin with..

ns2.golspot.us. 86400 IN NS ns1.goldspot.us.

golspot or golDspot ?

that should help. :)

aside from that; here is what My DNS records using name.com and CWP as well..
at your resistrars interface (name.com) you should be pointing your domain to your CWP DNS
ns1.yourdomain.com etc ... yes, name.com is kind of nice, but hard to navigate, (better tnah say "godaddy" though, imo. :)
If it is set up correctly, it really shouldn't" take that long to propagate.. i use https://www.whatsmydns.net
to observe the status..

i had to directly enter this into the DNS records instead of relying on CWP to create them 'correctly'/directly.
hope it helps:
---------------------------------------------------
; Panel %version%
; Zone file for ns1.yourdomain.net
$TTL 14400
ns1.yourdomain.net.      86400      IN      SOA      ns1.yourdomain.net.      info.centos-webpanel.com.      (
                  2013071600 ;serial, todays date+todays
                  86400 ;refresh, seconds
                  7200 ;retry, seconds
                  3600000 ;expire, seconds
                  86400 ;minimum, seconds
      )
ns1.yourdomain.net. 86400 IN NS ns1.yourdomain.net.
ns1.yourdomain.net. 86400 IN NS ns2.yourdomain.net.
ns1.yourdomain.net. 14400 IN A XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX        <---(Your IP Address to Your CWP Server)

------
This is for just one of my DNS -Domains i use with CWP.
the second, same thing, just use ns2.yourdomain.net, or com, or whatever..

i have also found that CWP's DNS may take a bit of 'tweaking', i havent had to change/add to it since i got it to work a year ago,
but there was quite a bit involved.. it may have since improved.. i sure hope so. :)

will try and help if you need more info, just post here..
Thanks.

Good catch on the typo.

whatsmydns.net=dnschecker.org

With the same ip for both nameservers I dont see the advantage to my own nameservers.  I have another cwp install and was thinking about using that as a second nameserver ip.
