Aha, very good point. So the registry-NetSol has the bogus nameservers, and the registrar-NetSol has the correct nameservers. And the WHOIS records at registry-NetSol say that neither domain has been updated in years. I guess this proves that the NetSol firewall works, at any rate.

But how could they be out of sync like this, for hours? I thought that updates should be reflected immediately; and of course the domain owner hasn't asked for any changes, certainly not to those odd .hu names for his nameservers.
