Hi, Not sure if i've posted this question in the right category (please move as necessary if not posted in the right category) but i'd like to host a small not for profit web-site using Apache, php and possibly MySQL under Mac OS X on a Mac Mini. I'm a newbie to Mac OS X and web-hosting so please bear with me if i'm asking questions that have an obvious answer. I've enabled Web-sharing/Apache, downloaded and installed php and set-up port forwarding on my ADSL Modem Router, i'm able to browse a test web-site that's running on my Mac Mini remotely from outside of my LAN therefore am happy that Apache is running, however i've come across a stumbling block (due to lack of knowledge and not having run my own web-server previously). What i'm confused with, and don't know the answer to is regarding setting up a registered domain name accordingly to point towards the static IP Address of my Mac Mini. I understand that several if not all domain name companies allow for you to point or re-direct domain names registered to other URLs however I don't know whether nameserver addresses need to be changed accordingly for hosting to be set-up correctly. The reason why i'm confused is because i'm paying for web-hosting via a third-party web-host and remember needing to change nameserver entries for the domain name registered to ones given by the third-party web-host. Why this needed to be done i'm not 100% sure. Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you. Kind Regards.
