simply add an "A-Record" pointing to your static IP and name it something like
"www.myfunny.dom IN A"
"*.myfunny.dom IN A"
(if you want wildcards like blah.myfunny.dom, foo.myfunny.dom, dummy.myfunny.dom, etc. too)

You remember when you registered the domain, you needed to fill out Primary DNS and secondary DNS information. That is the IP of machine for DNS servers in your own and that is the way how people can find your web server. Of course, you need to configure DNS services on that machines with domain zone files for www, mail or sub-domain.
