Simple Question: CentOS Server
 
Hello everyone, it's me again.
I just have a simple question that I need confirmation of.
I have searched through Google, but I am not really that convinced yet.

Anyway, I have created a server, CentOS 6.3.
From another computer, I can access its pages by typing the server's IP address in the web browser, since the server and the computer I am using is on the same LAN connection.

My question is, if I want the server to be accessed by it's hostname, either through a computer with the same LAN connection, or outside, do I need to register it online?

Thanks pipz~

Yes. You can get a free hostname from dyndns.org.
