Default Bind/Dns tutorial question

Hello, I've been reading the mentioned tutorial (www.howtoforge.com/traditional_dns_howto_p1) and I have a question of something I don't quite understand yet.

If I have a vps with IP 1.2.3.4 and a registered domain mydomain.com, but decided to use XName Nameservers and bind them to the domain registrar; do I still have to go through that whole process of binding?

If I do, how should I do to tell zone config file to use those NS? Just changing the IP's they are from in the zone config files?

I'm getting really confused over this ... so thanks for any help!

i don't quite clearly understand what exactly you're trying to say?

if you want to run your own dns server then basically you need to register your own dns hosts (dns1/dns2.mydomain.com) at your 'mydomain.com' register and point them to your server's ip (or more specifically, to the server where the dns server will be running on).

then you need to install and configure a dns server on your server and setup your 'mydomain.com' zone file there.

Hi,
I was just trying to use the DNS servers from Xname.org to create the A records and point to my server and thought that I needed some extra configuration from the server side, but I just tried deleting the zone from Xname and re-creating it and now it seems to work...

And I'm sorry, the url is http://www.howtoforge.com/traditional_dns_howto.

But I have another question... if I want the hosted server to be able to add parked domains 'automatically' from ISPConfig, I should at least be hosting one of the two nameservers so as to let it set the configuration?

I don't know if I expressed my doubt correctly though... thanks for the help!

Yes, if you want to manage DNS records from within ISPConfig.
