Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Your website isn't "pointing" anywhere. Your webserver is listening for any incoming connections on port 80, and responding with your web page. The reason you can't access it through the domain is DNS. When anybody types in a domain, DNS tells the computer the actual location of that website (the IP address of the computer hosting it). Your DNS for jmzcons.com isn't configured properly, so when somebody types in that domain, they are not being directed to the location where that website actually sits (your Dell box).
1-point the DNS for your domain to your router's public IP address
2-set your Dell up with a static IP on your local network
3-forward port 80 to your Dell's IP in your router config
