chris, what is the nameserver? Is this your dns server? Can it be my ISP? What does the second line mean? Thanks

Yes that would be his own name server which you most likely couldn't use as yours.

If you don't have your own name server, you would have to put in your own ISP's nameserver or DNS server they provide in that same format..

Usually like this:
Code:
search your-ISP-nameserver
nameserver   xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
nameserver   xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
The xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx defined above in the example is where you will want to put your actual IP address of your DNS entries provided by your ISP.
