Assuming you use a windows DNS server, have a look at: http://www.sonicwall.com/app/projects/file_downloader/document_lib.php?t=TN&id=144

Create a new A record inside the DNS server.
If you have windows server. should just create a new one inside the forward lookup zones.

Its pretty standard.

Create an A record with name:

example.com

write the IP address: 123.123.123.123
ping example.com <- should answer
