How would I point my domain name registered with GoDaddy to my host on my computer. I'm using Xampp as my server. I'm really confused, I've pointed other domain names to other hosts on the internet with nameservers, hwoever... I have no nameservers... to my knowledge. So how would I point my domain name to my host on my computer?

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

Do you have a static IP, or a DynDNS setup? – Pekka 웃 Dec 25 '10 at 16:12
Your provider should offer nameserver entries that you can edit. Do they? – Pekka 웃 Dec 25 '10 at 16:13
Are you behind a router or firewall? – Pekka 웃 Dec 25 '10 at 16:13

you need to go the domain manager - advanced and make an A record pointing to your ip address
