I added two NS records to my DNS record four days ago. I did this to use a service provided by the name servers that I added. In order to get them to enable their services, they need to verify that they are name server for my domain by doing a whois on my domain. It has been four days and whois still does not show the two new NS records. The whois server that gets checked is whois.rnids.rs.

Is there something special I need to do to update whois? I've verified that the new NS records have propagated to many DNS servers by nslookup -q=NS <my domain>. Indeed, the two original and two new NS records are returned.

I have had the same issue a few months back. The name servers took over a week but the contact info took way longer for them to change (2 months for sure)

Maybe updating the NS records is not the proper way to affect name servers. My domain management company updated their web UI and it now has a special section for updating name servers. I added the new name servers using this section and whois was updated accordingly within a few days.
