It depends on your registrar. Somewhere in their control panel there must be functionality concerning name servers and their registration. If in doubt, you need to contact them directly. Here's a tutorial for GD: http://youtu.be/VA3N5VNyX48
To sorta explain, as said before to use a private name server (ns1.mywebsite.com) you need to build this nameserver of yours at your current registrar where your domain name resides and assign it an IP address to point to. So in the end it goes like this, ns1.mywebsite.com pointing to IP address of [XX.XXX.XX.XX]. This IP address is where your website is hosted on a server some where.
Once this is done, the [DNS] Domain Name Server records have to also match the records of your nameserver [ns1.mywebsite.com] and IP [xx.xxx.xx.xx], so you add an "A" record for each. So in your admin panel on the server you have a way to modify your DNS records for your existing domain name, something like [DNS FUNCTIONS then go to EDIT DNS ZONE] there is where you add the new "A" records to your existing domain name.
In the end one of the "A" records you will add will look like this:
