    I am paying for a hosted DNS as my second and under any whois lookup it comes up as the hosts DNS.

    Is there a way I can make that hosted name server appear as my own eg, modify an A entry to NS2.mine.com rather than NS1.someoneelses.com??

    Can't see why not. Just ping the ns1.someoneelse.com get the IP and add an "A" record to your zone for NS2.

    Than go to your registrar and create the host. Just make sure you take note of the NS2 IP and any notices they might send regarding the change of its IP address.

    worked

    Thanks for the advice, I reset the nameservers and modified the A entries today and they have already propagated.
