Enom nameserver vs dynamic dns

Hi another green question I registered a nameserver on one of my sites on Enom added the static ip but it does not seem to work after 24 hours.
This is not the same as dynamic dns correct?
Do i need to bind the name server to my centos installation to work?

Sorry i am a complete **** when it comes to this.

Enom is a Registrar for registering domain names.

When you register a domain name you have to pick DNS servers to use for lookups (they don't have to be yours or even in the same domain). However if the DNS servers are in the domain you registered typically the registrar has a place for you to configure the DNS servers separate from where you specify the DNS servers.

That is to say they are two separate steps:
1) Setup DNS servers with their full name and IP.
2) Register a domain and tell it which DNS servers to use.

Also be aware it can take up to 72 hours for DNS information to propagate through the internet due to differences in caching done by root servers and intermediate servers such as your ISP's.
