You can go with a DNS hosting company. There might be some free ones out there. Just search DNS hosting in your search engine.
You can use your registrars DNS servers if they offer it (most offer it free of charge). This is registrar specific.
You can get another server elsewhere (*like Rackspace or Amazon EC2) and set up a server there.
You can run BIND on a webserver as well but if IBM doesn't allow it then you are probably stuck with the above options. It depends on what you want to do really.
