Issues with pointing a domain to a hosting

I have a domain from Company A and bought a space from Company B. Now I want to point my domain from Company A to Company B nameserver.

Company B gave me the nameserver that I need to point.

When I logged in to Company A cPanel there is already 4 different nameservers configured. I can't modify nor delete it so my option is to create a subdomain (ex. forum.mydomain.com) and point it to Company B nameserver.

After 24 hours I checked the forum.mydomain.com but could not get to the forum using the computer. I tried it on my iPhone using Safari browser but no luck. When I tried Opera browser on the iPhone it work and I can even login to forums Administration.

I can't figure it out why it won't work on the computer but it work on the Opera browser on the iPhone.

Did I miss something?
Be brave even if you're not. Pretend to be. No one can tell the difference.

You don't modify the nameservers in Company A's cpanel.

You don't need company A's cpanel if you are going to use Company B for hosting.

Company A should have a portal (or if they are not modern you may need to open a support ticket) to change the nameservers at the registrar level and not the hosting level.

Hope this helps.

PS: who is company A if you don't mind sharing we can provide better instructions for you most likely.
