DNS Host Handles/Registrations

I should probably have been more specific.  I am not trying to associate a
DNS server with a particular domain, that's obviously a no-brainer, using
any registrar.  I am talking about registering the DNS server itself, so
that it may later be associated with a given domain or domains.

For example, if I was to just pick an IP at random, build a DNS server on
it, and try to plug that IP into register.com's screen, it
(register.com) would refuse to accept it, as it would not be a "known" DNS
server.  I need the process which *used* to be known as registering a a
DNS server and obtaining a host "handle" for it.

If Governments really want us to behave like civilized human beings, they
should give serious consideration towards setting a better example:
Ruling by force, rather than consensus; the unrestrained application of
unjust laws (which the victim-populations were never allowed input on in
the first place); the State policy of justice only for the rich and 
elected; the intentional abuse and occassionally destruction of entire
populations merely to distract an already apathetic and numb electorate...
This type of demogoguery must surely wipe out the fascist United States
as surely as it wiped out the fascist Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.

The views expressed here are mine, and NOT those of my employers,
associates, or others.  Besides, if it *were* the opinion of all of
those people, I doubt there would be a problem to bitch about in the
first place...
