How to delegate a subdomain to another DNS provider ?

I try to delegate a subdomain of a domain to aws Route 53. I do not seem to be able to create a zone for the subdomain to enter the NS records. How would I do that ?

I just created a subdomain and I was able to create a NS record and point it to a different DNS. It actually works.

Unfortunately our DNS system does not currently support subdomain delegation. User feedback plays a major role in what features we develop so I encourage you to submit this to our user voice so others can vote on it.

Currently it is possible to delegate a subdomain from another provider to DO and create a zone for that subdomain.
