purchased .com, have it point at my server?


Ok, this is my first experience with a .com and everything so I'm not sure what all I need to do. I have a server sitting at my house, and I registered the name with godaddy.com . How do I get the mysite.com to point at my server? thanks

Set domain A records on godaddy.com or some other DNS server.

(make sure the A records meet up with your external IP, and that the ports are properly forwarding to whatever you want to do with that domain)

make a cname with WWW in the DNS.
