I am only using dns forwarding. I already have default values in /etc/resolv.conf from my ISP, do I have to add my 2 others and delete the ones from the ISP or just leave it as is. I registered the domain today when I "whois rimouski-undernet.org" I see right nameservers on it. Doesn't that mean it has propagated?
