i dont have access to router
i am using a hosting company.  and I am logging onto windows server 2008 using remote desktop
You can skip that part because your server probably has a public IP address.

Simply setup the A record and you should be good to go

but what settings do I have to do in windows server 2008 to have folders of the domain name  where I put files in the folders   (index.html)
Have you got IIS configured and installed?

not sure about configured.. but I have IIS installed
And you are able to browse to content from the server? For example on the server open Internet explorer and type http://localhost

What do you get?

localhost
