    "hosts" are registered at the registrar. They are bound to an IP address at the InterNic side. as long as the server at the other end of that IP responds to dns quries and the domain the host records are created for is a valid domain that hasnt' expired ..that's technically ally ou need for it to work. It also helps that the dns zone for the "domain" that ns and ns1 are with has NS records also in it. But that's technically not necessary but considered a standard doing so.

    Let's try another approach,

    You'll need 2 IP addresses. You can use the one main shared IP, and you need another as well.

    Let's assume these are your IPs:

    1.2.3.4
    5.6.7.8

    You would go where you registered the domain name (registrar) and log in to manage your account. I register domains at GoDaddy from time to time, so let's use them as an example.

    Once you log in to your registrar, you should have DNS options in there. Chances are, you can do what's called "Private Registration" where you can globally propogate/register private DNS servers such as: ns1.yourdomain.com and ns2.yourdomain.com

    Usually, you are asked a DNS host name and IP... like:

    ns1.yourdomain.com -> 1.2.3.4
    ns2.youdomain.com -> 5.6.7.8

    If your registrar has a phone number, just give them a call and tell them you want "Private DNS Servers". :)

    Let us know what comes of it,
