I have tried to register new nameserver on name.com

ns1.website.com

and used my ip address on IP Address field (I am using Apache server on my own computer), I tried to wait for 8 hours, but still, the website is not working on the server.

I can reach the server directly using its IP Address.

Hi,
even i had the same problem.
Are you able to access ur website with the ip address.
if yes then chk whether url forwarding is done by ur dns company.

> Are you able to access ur website with the ip address.
Yes, I can access the website using its ip address, however I can't access the domain name that assigned to the same ip address.

That mns u r apache server is working fine.
Check with ur dns provider .
They have the facility for url forwarding.
Check for the 'A' record over there you would find the ip address they have mention change there ip to urs tht's it and wait for some hrs.
Time depends on company to company. google takes just 15-20 min max.
some company takes 1-2 hrs.

I have tried to change the "A Record" and now it works, however, I still don't know why it doesn't wok when I register nameserver and assign my ip address to the nameserver, then assign the nameserver to the domain name.

Any information would be appreciated,
Thanks,

Unfortunately, I still can't point the domain name to my server using nameserver.

I registered nameserver ns1.mywebsite.com and used static ip address with ns1.mywebsite.com, still doesn't work.
