need details
1) do you have a dedicated leased line
2) the IP you have from your ISP is it a fix IP or you got it whenever you dial in (if you are using ISDN)
3) have you setup your machine to be a DNS server..... if you had but still can't browse then have you tried using your IP address to go to the web server....

I assume you have setup your web server (apache)... and your DNS have been installed...
if you can't access your www machine although the apache and dns is running.... then your machine might not be configured to run the dns yet...

check /etc/nsswitch.conf file....
look at the line where it got

host: file....

add the word dns to it

host: file dns

restart your named as shown below

ps -ef |grep named

kill -hup ThePorcessNumberforNamedFromThePsThingyAbove

what do you mean you can't register your IP for DNS.... if you have a dedicated leased line and a fix IP address then you can register with internic....
