Your question is a little vague.. Are you referring to a webserver domain, email domain or just specifically wanting to assign your host to a domain? There are numerous things associated with domain names, giving specifics are usually best.

I want my domain "l2realm.com" work on my server which has no control panel other than webmin installed. I want it to be able to have email accounts and work with apache server. Apache is up and running fine also I've created the entrys ns1.l2realm.com and ns2.l2realm.com and are pointing to the server ips and work fine. But I don't get how to make l2realm.com work.

Does "l2realm" stand for "lineage II realm"?
Sorry I didnt answer your question, I just thought I played on a server with that name.

Yes it does stand for that name. We're starting a dedicated Lineage II server.

Sorry to double post, but i know the answer to your question:

Register your domain name with someone.

I use http://www.no-ip.com/ to point the domain to my Local ISP given IP address

to find your IP address use http://www.ipchicken.com/

In your router, forward any needed ports to your machine (for web you forward port 80 to the local server ip such as 192.168.0.3)

that should allow anyone going to l2realm.com axess

Hmmm, hehe, thanks for that but it's not what I'm actually trying to get. I'll let you know as soon as the server is up.

not sure what your intent is - are ns1.l2realm.com & ns2.l2realm.com supposed to be name servers? from here, they both open your main page - but www.l2realm.com yields a 404.

You need to do a LOT to get a domain fully up and running.

You need:

1. To register the domain name (which it looks like you've done)
2. Define your nameserver(s)
3. Configure BIND to act as your nameserver (DNS)
4. Configure your email server (Postfix, sendmail, qmail, scalix, pick one)
5. Configure apache to host your web site

Rather than walk you through each I'd suggest reading various howtos on the web for each, and search this board for topics which already exhaustively cover each topic. I'd also look at putting a firewall appliance between your server and the internet - whether you go for a low-budget D-link or LinkSys or go for a higher end unit like a Cyberguard or Sonicwall firewall appliance. ANY firewall will be better than no firewall.

There are webmin modules to configure each of the components you'll need but for a reliable configuration you will definitely want to read the "fine" manual. I see that you say things are up and running but you will want to do some more reading because chances are you left an open relay (a field day for spammers!) or you may not receive email from some domains if your DNS records are not RFC-compliant.
