dns servers

Can anyone tell me if I had a dns server at home, with my own domain name, How would I get other people to see my domain, If my dns server is publically accessable how do I get other people to know about it ? cheers

When you register your domain name, you must put in two name servers that will resolve your domain records.

HTH and don't forget to rate!

If you dont have public IPs and DNS servers you can use services like

Re: dns servers

So If I was to use my own dns servers, do I just need to add a host on there with a name and ip or do I need to do anything else ?
