It has bacame my experience after alot of hair-pulling frustration 
that you have to register any 'hosts' for a domain with the *SAME* 
registrar that registered the domain name originally.

Anything else will not work.

If the domain has been transferred from the 'original' registrar it 
might possibly become another nightmare altogether.
