How do I point a domain name to my internal server if I have a dedicted IP through my host?

I have a domain name and a dedicted IP for our office.  How can I point the domain name to my internal server?  What steps to take first?

Thanks!

Who maintains the DNS for your domain name? Contact them and add a host record such as MyServer.MyDomain.abc to point to your static IP address. Then you can configure port forwarding on your router to forward the port for what ever service you wish to host on the server, to it's internal IP.

You can use a service like DynDNS - dyndns.com (paid solution) or a free solution such as ZoneEdit - zoneedit.com.
