    Question Domain Parking

    I am hosting my own website on my server, running Apache and MySQL and all that cool stuff. Anyways, I can type in my IP fine and the site comes up all good. Other people can also type in my IP and the result is the same. It works. Obviously I didn't want people to have to type in numbers to access my site, so I purchased a domain from GoDaddy. When I initially setup the domain, I entered my ISP's nameservers for the nameservers, but then, 48 hours later, the site was not working. I talked to my ISP, and they explained that it wasn't working because my domain was not parked through them.

    What does this mean? Should I just put in my static ip as a nameserver? I'm new to this sort of thing, and it's kind of confusing.

    Thanks!

    Their site seems kinda down or something. I looked at the DynDNS site, but you gotta pay for that.

    This sucks.

    I've never heard of a host that won't add you to their name servers.

    Try telling them again that you bought the domain name and pointed it to their name servers. They should update their DNS, it has to be some kind of miss communication.
