    I just leased a dedicated server, using transio.com as the root domain. So they gave me my DNS as follows:

    dns1.transio.com = 70.abc.xyz.2
    dns2.transio.com = 70.abc.xyz.3

    Ok, that's fine. So I assume that when I modify my DNS info for transio.com, I'll just use the IP addresses, right?

    Ok, so I go to godaddy.com and enter the IP addresses, and it's not taking them. The message I get is an archaic "Errors were detected."

    I'm thinking it may be that the DNS server registration hasn't propagated to GoDaddy yet?

    I'm gonna try again tomorrow, but if that's not the issue, does anyone else have any ideas what it could be?

    Ok, so I figured out the solution. GoDaddy (and other registrars, I imagine) has a "Hosts" section in the domain edit page, where you can manually enter IP addresses for DNS servers. I did this for NS1.TRANSIO.COM and NS2.TRANSIO.COM. Then, you have to set your nameservers for the domain to the new hosts and voila! :-D
