DNS for Static IP


I'm currently running Apache with a static IP (through Speakeasy) and plan to register a new domain name. Obviously when I try to register a domain, they want the IP of a primary and secondary name server. I understand what DNS is, but not sure who does it. Do I have to setup DNS (Bind?) for one, none or both?

I've seen these, but still was not sure...
dyndns.org
no-ip.com
zoneedit.com

Thanks in advance.

You either have to setup your own DNS to give to your registrar or go thru other services like you mentioned. I actually use zoneedit.com for mine to eliminate my need of setting up a DNS server. Its free, easy to setup and use as well.
