Default Newbie DNS question


I'm kind of a newbie with DNS and I have a little question about the DNS architecture and configuration. I have registered a domain (without any DNS) and want to bind it with my IP address so my server gets seen on the Internet.
I configured the zones in my named.conf file following the instructions in the Traditional DNS Setup How-to and I also added the zone files in /var/lib/named/. When I run the dig command I get the following:


; <<>> DiG 9.3.4 <<>>
;; global options:  printcmd
;; Got answer:
;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NXDOMAIN, id: 21243
;; flags: qr rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 0, AUTHORITY: 1, ADDITIONAL: 0

;                IN      A

;; AUTHORITY SECTION:                 694     IN      SOA 835839 3600 300 604800 1800

;; Query time: 16 msec
;; WHEN: Wed Oct  3 22:16:30 2007
;; MSG SIZE  rcvd: 96
And that means my domain is not bound to my IP.

Do I have to make my DNS registration with my ISP or something?

Thanks for the help
