domain names


this might not be the right forums for this but I'm not sure where else to go. I've setup an apache2 server on my gentoo box and is working fine. (192.168.1.108)
I have port 80 forwarded so it can be accessed from the internet. http://68.84.166.87 should bring up the apache test page because I haven't edited it yet. I registered a domain name at godaddy.com and have no clue wtf i'm doing. xaos-realms.net is the domain name and it just goes to the "parked" page. I've put in http://68.84.166.87 in the forwarding options and put in a record for it too. maybe I just have to wait a bit for it to update but I want to make sure i've done it right.

You have to setup a DNS server and give this information to godaddy where you registered your domain name. This way your actual domain name translates to IP. Not sure how to setup a DNS server or your using Dynamic IP with your ISP connection.. use a service like www.zoneedit.com for free DNS settings, etc.

Or if godaddy.com has redirection on their dns servers you can just add your ip address theirs and all dns request for your website will go straight to your ip address, and then your firewall will forward it to your web server.
