I have a domain I have configured with my posterous blog. For that I just added A record with the IP address provided by posterous. And it was working fine.

I want to make a site on www. Means or will point to my own hosting. For this I registered a hosting account on 000webhost. I added their nameservers.

But now my subdomain is not working. Only points to 000webhost. Rest nothing. Even without www its not working. And subdomain too.

Please help.

You need to add a new A record to your 000webhost DNS settings like you did to configure the first time. You can also add another A record for "@" pointing to the same IP as "www" is pointing to in order to get it to work without the www.

This is because all of your DNS settings for must be in the same place. When you added 000webhost's nameservers, you changed it so that all of your DNS settings are there on their nameservers instead of wherever they were before (probably whoever you registered your domain through).
