Add and with the respective IP addresses.[*]Install Bind on your server[*]Use the Bind module in webmin to create a new master zone for your domain name. You will need to add at least 2 "A" host entries (for ns1, ns2), then add another 2 "NS" entries for the current zone (leave the zone name part blank and put ns1 or ns2 in the nameserver part)[/list=1]

    So for step 5, you go to BIND server then, then Address,

    the on Address, you enter such as:

    Name: ns1
    Address: IP addresss

    then what about Update reverse and TTL? Whats that? I dont need to touch that right?

    TTL (time-to-live) is the time other DNS servers will look up the data on your server again. This is usually set from 60 to 86400 seconds.
