why on earth are you running redhat 9?? It's ancient.

What do you mean by only see? What are you doing? what happens if you use the domain name? what network architecture are you runnign this under?

I think you are talking about apache webserver. I think you created a web page and you want to access it via www.jmzcons.com instead of IP. I think it may be a DNS problem.

I am running redhat 9 because it works for me and my website www.jmzcons.com works well once before but now
I can only see my website if I call up 192.168.0.103 instead

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

Hi,

when you will set DNS for your domain (the public IP address you have your router connected)
then set the PORT FORWARDING to your server IP 192.168.0.103

setup like here

You still need to point your domain to your network's public IP address.

It sounds like you've only done the third of the three steps I listed. Two more to go.

well the domain resolves so I'd guess that OP doesn't appreciate that he's on a dynamic IP?

MX Error MX Records Oh well, I did not detect any MX records so you probably don't have any and if you know you should have then they may be missing at your nameservers!
