Red Hat 9 Webserver

Ok hello, I am new to Linux so I have no real clue to what I need to do.

I installed Red Hat 9 on an old system that I am trying to use as a small web server. Nothing big and fast, just something so we can put a small web site up.

My question is how do I set something like this up?

I need to be able to use my domain. So how do I set up name servers using the ip? (ex. NS1. and ns2

Yes, I have all of those installed. I put them all on during the install. But I need help with the DNS I want to use my domain, So How do I create name servers using my IP address? UNI.CC (free domain service that offers DNS functions) Will not let me create my own name servers so if possable I want to use my ip address as my nameserver?

You have to edit the virtualhosts section in /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf See for all the details.
