I'm a little confused with step 4 of the initial setup of cPanel/WHM. I have logged in for the first time and have been asked to select a nameserver {bind or nsd}, I have currently selected nsd as it was default.

Next I am asked to specify up to 4 name servers. Currently two are entered with ns1.com and ns2.com which I believe are incorrect. What should I be changing these to? Are they supposed to be the vpsville name servers? Or do I have to register my own nameserver for my domain. If so what is the best way to go about that.

Finally the "Add A entries for all nameservers" and "Add A entries for hostname" what exactly is an A entry and what should I be configuring this to.

Apologies for the many newb questions. Gotta learn somewhere.
