Let's say you have a domain yourdomain.com, and you want to use private name servers ns1.yourdomain.com & ns2.yourdomain.com

You go to the registrar of yourdomain.com and register name servers ns1.yourdomain.com & ns2.yourdomain.com

In the DNS Zone of yourdomain.com you add A records for those name servers, so that they are pointing to the same IPs as the original name servers.

After you have created a new account you edit it's DNS Zone and change the name server entries to match the private name servers.
