I can't quite understand what you're on about, but for a home network with just one or two machines, there's no real need for your own DNS server. The DNS servers provided by your ISP should suffice. You could, however, turn into a home webserver and use DynDNS to dynamically update a system for running your own website across the Internet. Maybe this was something that may have been suggested to you?
