I have two DNS servers setup locally. I would like to use my local servers for all my VPS subscriptions instead of the nameservers my ISP gave me. What is the best way to get name servers to resolve using the FQDN?
If I understand correctly you already have the name servers setup and populated but want to know how to get the world to use those servers not your ISP?
The solution is simple. You need to contact the domain name provider and have them set the name server ips to your servers ip numbers. If you do a whois lookup on your domain you will see what IP's your domain currently uses as the DNS servers. (www.allwhois.com)
