Whois lookup reports wrong name servers IP

Msg#: 4308169 posted 8:45 am on May 5, 2011 (gmt 0)

Hi all,

I use a hosting companies name servers for a lot of my domains but to mask this I point sub domains of my own domain to my hosts name servers IPs.

ns1.myhost.com: 123.456.789.111
So I have created ns1.mydomain.com and I point it to 123.456.789.111. Then I update the domains name servers to point to ns1.mydomain.com.

I have recently had to change the IP addresses for these name servers as I have moved hosts.

The problem is that when I do a whois lookup it lists the name servers correctly but shows the old IP addresses (the ones that point to the old host).

But if I ping ns1.mydomain.com it shows the correct IP address so it must have propagated already.

Am I doing something wrong?
