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.

Does Monkeyserver allow port 80 packets (aka HTTP) to reach your router? Some ISPs do not allow this. If Monkeyserver does not, then you'll have to work out a deal with them to change their mind.
Unless you keep your dynamic host and domain name for a long time, Google will not have enough time to even know it exists.
I believe the web site address you should use is the hostname of the Internet-connected device (your router or a PC) that has been given the dynamic DNS hostname. That is all anyone in the Internet will see. The router should be configured such that when it receives port 80 packets sent to that address, then forward them on to your internal web server. I am no expert on exactly how to do this.
A static IP address would make things simpler. But if the dynamic DNS is working, a static IP should not be required.
Having or deleting an HTML file will not affect the access to a web server. What it will affect is what is seen once the web server is reached.
You probably are very close to success. Keep at it, and good luck.
but how can i check/verify wether packets on port 80 reach my router
well it seems that i need a static IP with this router
damn small linux gives more (to me) options for configuring my network card but haven't been able to set it up correctly
cause i have no acces to the internet
ip adress here i type in a ip 192.xxxxxxxx
Broadcast adress for eth0 ? not sure
Default gateway default
Nameserver what here , right now it's 10.0.0.1
i played around but wasn't able to connect to the internet
i'll go and check to set it up right
i tried once to access my pc with another using the ip adress and ended up on the admin page of my isp
but then i did not forwarded port 80 yet
anyway thanx , exiting , in the future i'm thinking on the paying to host a website , but for now i want to learn some of the details
