Actually, I'm almost certain Icann requires two nameservers. Setting up BIND (or one of the slim few other nameservers) is not exactly a weekend walk in the park. You might want to consider 'the free public DNS'. You have to build your own MX record from scratch, but it has a pretty well built example. Then you can have the sight served while in the process of getting your own nameserver running. When you've got it running, you can have your machine run primary and keep 'the free public' as secondary. Oh, the address is:
Also, its sometimes te case that your ISP will provide nameservice for free. Telocity did for me, while Earthlink wanted some extra cash and Roadrunner had it free depending on your plan.
