Unhappy DNS Propagation Not Working? Did I screw it up?

Hi, I'm new to these forums. Thanks in advance for any help.

I have a new domain name that I registered. I set up dns records on my server with ISPConfig, using the helpful howtoforge tutorial.

I believe that I have all my settings setup correctly, however, it's been a week, and the domain name still does not resolve. I think I must be doing something wrong. Can anyone help?

The domain name is driims.com

The two dns servers are ns1.danandtovi.com and ns2.danandtovi.com

output of dig @ns1.danandtovi.com driims.com

; <<>> DiG 9.3.4 <<>> @ns1.danandtovi.com driims.com
; (1 server found)
;; global options: printcmd
;; Got answer:
;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 40844

;driims.com. IN A

driims.com. 86400 IN A

driims.com. 86400 IN NS ns1.danandtovi.com.
driims.com. 86400 IN NS ns2.danandtovi.com.

ns1.danandtovi.com. 86400 IN A
ns2.danandtovi.com. 86400 IN A

Is it possible that the DNS record just needs more time to propagate? I thought that generally 3 to 4 days was all it needed to start showing up.

Thanks for any help or advice!

Default Update

I talked with my domain name company, and they say that I need to register my name servers with a global name server registry? So I asked them to do that. Anyone heard of this requirement?
