Hi I host lots of small websites on a webserver at my house. I use comcast for isp, and although they say my IP is dynamic it hasnt changed in 6 years now. I have some domain names at godaddy.com right now they just forward to my IP address. It works but its ugly becouse the user goes to http://www.myname.com and gets redirected to http://1.1.1.1.1 How would I go about setting up my server to just work like a normal host and keep the domain as it should be. (I am hosting on win2k3) Thanks!

You need to look into some DNS hosting, such as FreeDNS, which will track your IP, and, instead of showing your IP address when going to your URL, it will be masked by an actual name.
