I know I've asked this question before, but I don't think I asked it properly, here goes: I want to host a website on my computer at home. I can get apache2 running, and get the website going, but I need a domain, and I don't want to buy service. I would like to have a domain using my webserver as the DNS server. Thus far I know I need bind, but that's about it. I also know that I need to configure my router so that it fires port 53 ip packets to my DNS server to be. Can you help me? Please? I have a static IP.
