Like mentioned before, you need a DNS setup and have your registrar point your domain to the DNS server that then translates your Domain Name to an IP so the world has a way of knowing where your domain exists on the net.
Don't have a DNS server and or don't know how to build one? And are you using DHCP? Then look into using services like www.zoneedit.com
and or www.dyndns.org
for DNS services for your domain name.
