That doesn't really make sense. There is no point at which you assign an IP to a domain other than a DNS assignment, and that does nothing other than that alone. You still need to make what's on the end of that IP address actually do something...

Here we go. Every IP on the Internet is paid for. An ISP gives your machine an IP address. Domains are registered as belonging to a certain IP. You can register a domain yourself, if the you know the IP you want to use, and the domain is available. Otherwise, you find a web host, tell it what domain you want, and it registers the domain with one of its IPs. There are also lan domains, which belong to private networks. The standard domain suffix for small networks is '.ald'. If you are working with a local area network, and you want to create a domain, you just name every machine <something>.ald, and they will communicate. You cannot create Internet domains or IPs out of thin air.

I bought domain on godaddy.com - lets say forexample.com and I bought space on some server - lets say 123.123.123.123 This is my own server and I have root access. When I'm opening forexample.com I want to get pages from my server. For now it works only by ip.

Thanks

you'll need to visit zoneedit.com and possibly dyndns.org

erm, sorry... why those two sites?? randonly turning up at dyndns.org really isn't going to help him at all, not least as it's specifically not relevant to his problem, i.e. he *DOES* have a static ip...

he may be able to use zoneedit if he wants to but is by no means obliged to in any way.

from what you said,
you can type ip-addr to see your web page, but you cannot type your domain-name to see your web page.
if this correct, it means you need a DNS, (convert your domain-name to ip-addr)
you can go to xname.org or other free-dns-site to create a dns script, so that they can host your domain-name.
