    it's a little long to explain here and everyone has their own way of doing things, this link should help you:

    http://www.webhostgear.com/11.html

    you will need 2 ip's , I use the servers main ip for ns1 and a second spare ip for ns2.

    You should also change the hostname to match your domain if does not already, such as secure.mydomain.com

    then use:
    ns1.mydomain.com (main server ip)
    ns2.mydomain.com (spare ip)


    You will need to register the domain name with your registrar as named servers, registrars such as enom and 123reg let you do this from their control panels.
