    i have new colocation server, WHM already in it. if i have new domain example : abcd.biz,
    how to register private nameserver like this : ns1.abcd.biz & ns2.abcd.biz, so if i trace it at other far away shell with command : host -t ns abcd.biz my domain will respond it with result :
    ns1.abcd.biz
    ns2.abcd.biz

    If you have your name server enabled on your box, simply edit the dns record for
    the domain you are interested in and add the following entrys.

    ns1 14400 IN A 123.123.123.123
    ns2 14400 IN A 123.123.123.456

    Use IP addresses that were setup on your server.
    You could also edit the file
    /etc/nameserverips
    and add them directly in there

    Next you need to register your name server at your registrar and point to the
    assigned addresses in your dns record.

    You may need to look up the FAQ at your registrar to do this

    Thats about all.
