I am using server 2003 for my domain controller. The same server is my dns server. I really don't need a dns server, I just set it up for the experience. I use charter for my isp(cable). I bought a domain today and would like to host it myself. I would eventually like to create an exchange server and use my own domain for email as well. The pc's in my house log onto a local domain(rodge). What do I need to do to add my new domain to my server? I have a static ip with my isp. Since I am using my own dns server, can't I register my public domain within my own dns server with my public ip address?

I think u have public dns servers confused with dns servers that run on private networks eventhough they both perform the same task.
for a small opertaion such as urs u dont really want to maintain public dns servers and u will be better of to let ur isp handle it for u (even if u run ur own web servers).All u have to do is to create a zone in ur dns server that will correspond to ur public domain name.Then in ur internal dns server u make sure in the forwarders tab to include ur isp's dns servers and also make sure all ur clients and servers in ur private network are pointing to ur internal dns server.On ur router or firewall just forward port 80 to ur web server and ports 25 to ur exchange server.U may have to open other ports depending on services that u have to provide to ur public users.

Okay, thanks for the reply. I'm not real sure if I added the zone correctly, but I think it's okay. This is a forward zone, correct? I'm sure you're right about public vs. private dns. How will I know if I've done it correctly in server 2003?
