    Hello all here is my first post :)

    First of all thanks to the author of this tutorial http://www.howtoforge.com/linux_bind9_and_caching_nameserver . I was reading it and really explains how to things step by step, but still I have a problem with configuring nameservers so I came here to ask for help.
    I'm trying to figure out the way to make nameservers for domain name "komentari.info" on vps I rented for testing. In order to update nameservers of this domain I should create ones on this vps machine rite.. like ns1 and ns2 or whatever.. the thing is that I add these ns1.komentari.info inside /etc/named.conf inside file it points to /var/zone/named/ns1.komentari.info.zone. I also add httpd.conf inside <Virtualhost> .. and yet I don't manage to change domains nameservers .. I've bought this domain at key-systems.de (sorry if this is spam) and it doesn't allow me to update nameservers because they don't quite exist .. I've been reading a lot to get an idea how DNS works and I'm pretty much there just I'm missing something. Can you guys help me, which file/s should I edit .. or if I'm doing something wrong to start with can someone put me in the right direction? I've been googling but this tutorial is the best I could find for this type of setup ..
    Thank you in advance
