View Full Version : How to point to a public IP address

Hi everybody:

I have a question that I am looking the answer for for almost a 4 days now.

I have registered a domain name with WestHost. I have also set up my own webserver which is connected to a public ip address. What I want to do is when people type the domain name in the browser, they will go to the public IP. The webserver is also a mail server, so it should also work for e-mails.

Can please someone tell me how to do this, would be much appreciated.

Kind regards,

You need to have the DNS entries point to the public IP.

But I don't understand why you don't use WH's hosting...?
