I did mine about 4 years ago, so memeory is hazy.
I think you need to add your name server entries in Sever Configuartion >> Basic WebHost Manager Setup

You will need to own the domain name, I bought one specifically for this reason, and this reason alone.
I called mine NS and NS1.mydomain.com

I also gave my server a hostname based on the same domain name.
mytown.mydomain.com
