I am attempting to set up a web server using Windows Advanced Server 2000 on an ADSL broadband connection with a static IP address. The domain name has been delegated to the IP address of my name servers 2 weeks ago and I have installed and configured DNS and IIS on the server. I have the order for DNS resolution in the Windows registry set to the following order of priority - DNSPriority, LocalPriority, HostsPriority & NetbtPriority on the server. Firewalls were disabled for the purposes of reachability testing of the server and port 80 was forwarded on the router. An online test for port access showed that port 80 is open. The website is configured to communicate on port 80. However, I can only access my website using the domain name on the server. Conversely, I can only access my site on a client machine using the IP address of the DNS server (i.e ISP assigned IP address). What am I doing wrong and how can I configure the server so that all client machines can access my website using the domain name?

Did you change the domains authoritative DNS servers to the IP address of your Windows server? Remember that all domains must be configured with the DNS servers that are authoritative for it. You can do this by setting these dns servers at the web site where you registered the domain.
