Recommend you setup a linux box with BIND or something installed behind
a firewall.

Port forward port 53 for protocols TCP AND UDP to your internal IP address.

Set up bind to respond to queries for the internal IP address (it likely
only responds to localhost by default)

Limit it so it doesn't do recursion for the internet queries

Setup a zone on the box for a domain.

Point your domain registrar to the IP address of your DNS box.

Voila, you now have an authoritative name server.
