Let's say you register a domain, Example.com. You Host it on HostGator, but you want the nameservers to be NS1.EXAMPLE.COM & NS2.EXAMPLE.COM instead of NS54.HOSTGATOR.COM & NS55.HOSTGATOR.COM. Is that possible and if so how is it done?
EDIT: I found a way for anyone seeing this in the future, set two NS DNS Records at ns1.yoursite.com and ns2.yoursite.com then add two CNAME records hosts being ns1 and ns2 and point them to your Web Hosting's Original Namservers.
you want a custom name server as in your own domain ..
the easyest way ir to put together your own server the whole process use to be free there were several groups out there that if youdidnt have at least a fixed perminate IP would even provide you with a pair of I P addresses linked to name server at your domain like ns1.lacobus.com and ns2 II think today all charge though groups I have checked are pretty resonable you can get one for like $20 a month ..
another easyer way to do it is to go to a web host that offer resellers accounts there is usually a fee you can pay to have personal name server..
either way it all start by registering a domain and then registering the domain to a fixed Ip linked to your personal name server ..
if I am confusing start you reading here :) http://dyn.com/dns/ this is one of the best and most reputable groups for DNS just keep in mind you can not use a personal DNS since they are data hosts your shared hosting folder is usually your domain name linked to there DNS ..
also keep in mind setting up your own personal DNS leaves you with the problem of finding at least 2 if not more reputable data centers in different locations either one side of the country and the other in case one has a big outages your linked in another way to a lot of down time or at least very slow load times ..
