Default Windows server 2008 DNS server

Hi. I'm trying to get a domain name for my web server using DNS on Windows server 2008. I havn't tried this before so I don't know if its even possible . I already added the DNS role but I'm not sure how to make the domain name public (if its possible).

if you want others to be able to excess the wepserver, you need to buy a domain name from a provider.

Thanks for the reply. I know I could buy one but I thought I could use DNS to host it myself. I'm probably wrong though.

that i don't know anything about. sorry
but i don't think that you can.
imagen if everyone could host a site for free.
then it would not make sense that people pay money for domain names.
