Assume I register domain 'mynew.org' with registrar namecheap; and as an exercise,
I plan to setup my own two authoritative DNS nameservers for 'mynew.org'.

I have several linux VMs, that are under used, so I want to use them
for the nameservers for 'mynew.org'.  **Neither are in 'mynew.org';
is that going to work?**

namecheap support seems to suggest that the personal DNS authorative nameservers
for 'mynew.org', must be in 'mynew.org', as in


This is not what I want, since I do not want to spin up 2 new servers.

**Pls confirm, that I do not need to do this, and that I could use 2 existing
linux hosts outside of mynew.org as personal DNS authorative nameservers.**
Any additional related tips appreciated.
