Please read my long-winded response about using domains purchased through 1and1 as domains to attach a subdomain as a DNS server.

I answer and explain important details like...

(Q1a) do i have to register ns1.chelserv.com with the www.1and1.co.uk reg company or do i just enter it in to the "YOUR DNS SERVERS" boxes for www.chelsev.com with www.1and1.co.uk reg company?

echo ns1.chelsev.com > /etc/hostname
/bin/hostname -F /etc/hostname

or

echo chelsev.com > /etc/hostname
/bin/hostname -F /etc/hostname
one quesiton I have, is why on earth would you want your hostname to be ns1.something.com? That is likely not going to be a web address you wish to type in or anything you want to identify your machine as. It will just server as a "host domain" address with your registrar and your machine needn't be aware of the ns1.something.com designation at all in the least, because the registrar takes care of it!
