Re: Several (name)servers for one domain?

The problem was that my domain manager didn't let me edit the NS, A, CNAME records - I was trying to do this an alternative way. So I'll transfer my domain to a better provider.

I'm signed up as well on a couple webhosting (awardspace, byethost) services offering PHP, MySQL etc. Might join Google App Engine too for running Java projects. So my issue is - can I set some sort of nameserver hierarchy so the three hos...
