Default Ubuntu 8.10 Perfect Server Question


Apologies if theres another post on this that ive missed but im a little confused. My ISP wont provide a static IP address for me so Im having to use dyndns site name. However I'm following this guide

When it gets to this part:

then edit /etc/hosts. Make it look like this:

vi /etc/hosts localhost.localdomain localhost server1

Im not sure what to put there. I called my server ubuntu, my static ip address for the server is and my dyndns account for example is

How do I set this up? can anyone help please? I'm a little confused since this is my first ever server setup and I don't want to get it wrong.

Your help would be greatly appreciated.
