HTTP and FTP server setup FC3

Hey im getting my fc3 machine to run an http and ftp server. I want to host a website and allow remote change by ftp (which isnt really a problem so far). My question deals with what i need to do to use my registered domain name ( instead of my ip address. I was wondering if i actually have to run a DNS server as well, or is there an easier way to do it that wont confuse the hell out of me. Thanks everyone.
