rather than use the x.x.x.x IP to connect to it, I want to use a DNS name.Hopefully if my public IP address ever changes, the DNS entry will update to my new public IPThat's what DNS does, it resolves a domain to an IP......you cant connect to anything unless you broadcast an IP which has been resolved?
I know my public IP address of my home internet serviceYou mean the WAN addy of the computer your sending/receiving from?
My question is how do I 'bind' the name (xxxx.ignorelist.com) to my IP address?You would normally have to get the webhosts name servers, then enter them into the domain registrars database so that your domains are pointed to your webhosts name servers.Have your webhost for ignorelist.com enter your domain in their name server, or in apache if they're using virtual domains.
