home server setup

I have in the past used noip for a dynamic dns for learning to setup and use my own server at home. I now own my own domain name and still want to serve my little site from home. Im not seeing any directions on how to do this. 

 

Any help would be great. 

 

Thanks

Re: home server setup

You would still need a Dynamic DNS service, as the DNS here is intended for Fixed IP addresses.  The DNS provider would give you the proper nameservers to use and you can add them to your domain following the steps of this article.

Note that it's against the terms for most home internet providers to use their service to host a website.  It can be cheaper and more reliable to just get a hosting account.
