Hosting web pages works fine with the current config and if at all possible, I would like to not have to reconfigure the entire home network.
Oh and in case my first explanation was unclear, I believe what I'm trying to do is basically the contents of the following HOWTO, but without ISPConfig
*How To Run Your Own Name Server With ISPConfig And providerdomain.de (Schlund)*
You are behind a router so set port forwarding for 53 (dns),80 (apache) and other needed ports. Then contact your domain register and ask them to register you 2 name servers (ex. ns1.yourdomain.com and ns2.yourdomain.com) and point them to your static ip. After that you have to configure bind (as you saw in the tutorials). Make zone for yourdomain.com. Then edit your apache configuration and add virtualhost for your domain.
Note: If your server's ip is local ip behind the router (ex. 192.168...) the dns records must be set to your public ip address, but your apache virtualhost - to your local ip.
