If you change your domains DNS settings it may take up to 24hours to propagate across the internet.
Sometimes the OLD DNS entry will be cached and you will need to either flush the DNS cache to get rid of it, or wait up to 24 hours for it to be dropped from the cache automatically.
To do this in windows click on Start=>Run
then type: cmd
in the black window type:
ipconfig /flushdns Press enter. If you get an error saying: 1. Click Start or Windows logo at the bottom left corner of the screen 2. Click All Programs 3. Click Accessories 4.

So here I move to godaddy.com VPS. To transfer my domain I need to set up name servers..
I have Plesk control panel but it should be similar with other control panels..
Plesk gives you some default name servers but one of the requirements from my domain registrar ( I have a foreign domain and no access to change my own dns servers) was to have TWO dns servers.
Luckily Godaddy.com give 3 IP addresses for VPS. So you need to add at least one more.. then..
plesk->homepage->yourdomain->DNS zone management
1-Delete the current NS record in your dns zone
YourDomain.com A YourIP
YourDomain.com NS NS.YourDomain.com
2-Add two A records for nameservers, like:
ns1.YourDomain.com IN A yourFirstIP
ns2.YourDomain.com IN A yoursecondIP
3-Add two new NS records like:
YourDomain.com IN NS ns1.Yourdoamin.com
YourDomain.com IN NS ns2.Yourdoamin.com
