Registering name servers (i.e. creating glue records) is one of the
chief responsibilities of the registrar of the domain. 1and1 needs to
provide a means by which this can be accomplished.
Unfortunately, 1and1 pretty much sucks as a registrar, so best of luck
finding out from them how to accomplish this. As long as 1and1 is your
registrar they are the only ones who will be able to register
ns.yourcompsolution.com as a name server.
So, either you have to get 1and1 to do this, or you need to transfer the
domain to another registrar. Ask your DNS provider who they recommend.
