Just started a VPS from yourselves and am having an odd issue:

I have set it up for www.mumbleforgamers.com
I have set the nameservers to ns1.vpsville.ca and ns2.vpsville.ca at my registrar.

If you check it out on intodns.com, you can see that the nameservers are in use:

<link>www.intodns.com/mumbleforgamers.com

However, mumbleforgamers.com is still using the registrars holding page.

IF you try a random subdomain though, it brings you to the holding page on the vps: example:

<link>www.random.mumbleforgamers.com

I have added the domain to the DNS on you control panel, and set the reverse DNS.

Any ideas what is causing this?

Most likely it is a DNS propagation issue, with the lookups for the sub-domains going through to the new nameservers, but the main domain still picking up the cached IP addresses of the holding page.

In my experience it normally takes a day or two for all the DNS caches out there to update their stale entries.
