    How do I setup an in home NS?

    Kind of a genral and stupid question, but I dunno how else to ask it... I have a domain, and I want ns1.whatevermynameis.com to point to my linux box just down the hall...

    I have looked around my host's domain admin site (because it is currently pointed at a shared hosting server that hosts my site) ... I dont know what entries to change...

    Sorry my question is so vague, but I have little to no expierence with this..

    Any help is appreciated

    I think this is more a server question than a domain question?
    From the registrar level it does not matter much where your server is actually located. All they need is 2 IP numbers.
    I'm not a server expert - but hope that helps.

    what you need to do is to contact your domain name registrar and have them register the name server for you, that's all

    all you need is to download a nameserver client or dns workshop to maintain your records then register your ips/hostsnames with you registrar and your set
