    All,
    I am confused as what to put..

    Example:
    Server 1
    ns1.wickedstangs.com at IP 66.666.6.01
    ns2.wickedstangs.com at IP 66.666.6.01

    New Server 2
    ns1.wickedstangs.com at IP 66.666.6.02
    ns2.wickedstangs.com at IP 66.666.6.02
    server names.JPG

    On Name Cheap, I am trying to point some of my URL to the new server.

    Is this the correct way to do it?

    My new login at the New Server says:

    You need to create the following name servers at your registrar:
    ns1.wickedstangs.com using IP 66.666.6.02
    ns2.wickedstangs.com using IP 66.666.6.02

    Does it matter that I have NS3 and NS4?....

    Nope they don't even have to be ns*. could even be cobra.wickedstangs.com and gt.wickedstangs.com

    .01 and .02 should be .1 and .2 though.

    >>>> You need to create the following name servers at your registrar:

    That means you haven't created your name servers yet. You need to do that first..

    If you created them at names cheap and create DNS records for them on your server, there should be no reason as to why they wouldn't resolve as long as the IPs are assigned and provisioned to the server.

    Not sure then, you should contact your host so they can look at the logs then to see what is causing the error.
