Good day,

From what is seems, you will never be able to host DNS using a private "local" server.

You need at least 2 public DNS server IP addresses whether its a physical or a virtual is entirely up to you to act as a lookup for

Master and a Slave

As mariose suggested, you need to have:

- Public IP
- A registered domain (i think you have one already)
- BIND DNS Server configured on your box
- Others.. which I can't think of

Just curious why need to host your own DNS server, let your ISP manage it..
