Question Domain bound to network ?

hi guys !

I own several domains which I use for various purposes, I have just purchased one which I would like to use to identify my network at home. The network has around 20-25 nodes at any one time (spanning 3 or so houses) and has grown to be fairly complex. How would I go about using one of my domain names to identify the network ? ie. when someone looksup my ip address it resolves to my domain name and not my netmask assigned by my ISP (I am on a 2mb pipex dsl connection) ? a hosting company I am involved with is willing to host the domain on their name servers, but is that all I need ? or do I need to have a machine running at my end with a copy of BIND running or something ? I know companies such as UKReg offer a "web forwarding" service, but I dont want this, I would like to have control over the domain

any help would be great guys (a whitepaper or something ?), I do realise that I am probably way off with this, so I apologise if its a little confusing !

cheers in advance !
