WebFaction
Community site: login faq

Hello - I have a domain and a sub domain which are hosted on webfaction currently and they work fine. The sub domain is running a blog and is active - the domain was just a coming soon page(with a link to blog). Now I need to point my name servers on main domain to another host so that their services can be used.

Is there a way through which I change my main domain's nameservers but nothing changes on the sub domain - I do not want the sub domain to be affected - it is running fine.

Thanks in advance.

Your subdomains are always going to use the same NS as your parent domain.

If you want a seamless transition, then create an A record for the subdomain, pointing to your WebFaction server IP, at the same time as you update your NS records (all of that should be done at your registrar). That way, when everything propagates, your subdomain IP will remain the same.
