    Hello everyone,
    I have followed the instructions here on how to make a server:
    The server works locally on my however how do I get my domain, my domain, and my domain to point to my ip address?

    I understand I have to use bind dns however im having the hardest time getting it to work ... Also it will be a lamp and mail server.

    Can someone please give me a good guide. O and port 80 is blocked so I need to use port 8000.

    Thanks a bunch.

    setting DNS

    Just search in Howtos section for Using Own Nameserver
    Or use google. You should find 1 or 2 guide.

    To point your domain to your public ip address, you must use your domain provider account.
    If you have Complete DNS control from your domain provider, this means you can use their nameserver.

    If you don't have it, usually they have option for assigning/registering ip address of your nameserver. Then you can use it as nameserver for each of your domain.

    If you also don't have it, then maybe you can submit ticket to your domain provider to ask them do it for you.

    Hope this helps.
