Tell me if I am wrong. If I wanna setup a public server which everybody can come in. and I wanna use my own DNS which is on the same server as the web server. So I first register a domain name, then in the register page I set it as then I do some configuration in my DNS program there is a file called name.conf and set my IP address and my host name. basically that's how it works right?? oh and thanks for your nice detail explaination.

It will only work for your internal network.

My ISP is Comcast, and when I browse the internet I query Comcast DNS servers.

If you want me to type and reach your machine you need two things.

A) be the rightful owner of such unique name. This is managed by Internic arround the world.
B) Have a STATIC IP (one IP that will never change, provided by your ISP)

Comcast DNS servers (as any other ISP) pull their Domain Name index from Internic.

hey I am using comast also! They didn't change my ip for long time... so I guess that will work. cause I can manually change my dns information once every 3 months which is not too bad. and by the way I do have a internic certifyed domain name.
