I've just registered a domain name, just to test how uploading a website works (I've made heaps, but never uploaded one), and I am unsure of where to go next. I wish to use my own personal computer just to test it, then later on I will see what my options are. It'd be a waste for me to buy hosting if I feel the whole website thing isn't for me...
I understand that in order to appoint my computer to the domain name I need to specify some DNS servers, but how do I set this up on my computer?
I'm running Windows 7, I've installed IIS and have my site working nice in my LAN, but I want people outside of my LAN to access it using the domain name I've purchased.
Please excuse me if things don't make sense or I'm doing something wrong; I'm new and just trying to learn.
