Can't figure out how to replace TS3 IP address with domain name

I have installed TS3 on my computer and everything runs just fine, however instead of people or myself having to remember the IP address I wanted to cover it with a domain name. How can I do this and have something like point people straight to something like 18.326.90.127. Much thanks for any help.

Well, since it's likely you don't have your own authoritative DNS server running to be able to direct the connection queries to your TS3 server, you could get yourself a Dynamic DNS (a.k.a. DynDNS or DDNS) service to do the routing from the internet to your server. You can learn more about DynDNS on Wikipedia here, and a couple of organizations that handle DDNS are and

Of course, if you aren't interested in receiving connections from the internet, and just on your local LAN (again, not likely, but I served as well and could understand running a LAN party in the barracks, especially between floors), you can read the wiki on the Hosts file.

HTH. Let us know.
