Name servers not accessible

Hi everybody
I am facing a little problem with names servers. I have a VPS with Kloxo installed on it
I have registered 2 name servers (i.e. and past one month.
These nameservers are not accessible yet. I have check the nameserver on internic site and they are registered with the correct IP. But if I access it online via Internet explorer or nslookup I get server not found. And if I put ip address in IE I get the default page of my server

Anybody can suggest what could be wrong

When you say that you registered two name servers, do you mean that you own and are responsible for those name servers, or that you put their names in /etc/resolv.conf so your server will use them when trying to resolve host names and IP numbers?

If you own the name servers, then is bind installed and running on them?
Are they set up so that they are visible from the internet (i.e. firewall settings etc. all good)?
