I bought a domain name, wafflegaze.com. I have a DynDNS set up, waffledns.endoftheinternet.org. Can I make the former point to wherever the latter is currently pointing? I seem to only be able to add IP addresses to my DNS records.

UPDATE: I can make www.wafflegaze.com point to the DynDNS with a CNAME entry. Can I do this for the main domain name too?

You cannot make wafflegaze.com. a CNAME, because it already contains the (required) SOA and NS records, and a CNAME cannot coexist with any other kind of a record.
