    a little confused by your question ;)

    if you have a website hosting package with an ISP, then you can have them 'point' the domain name to their part of the server where your website is stored

    depending on the ISP, you may be able to do this yourself through their admin or management options
    - but you need to know the IP of their DNS (domain name servers)

    give your ISP a call and ask them how they do it
    ======================================
    if that wasn't your question, please post back - ypu may be talking about running your own webserver, but you still need the correct IP set so that other computers know how to find you

    go to the website where you registered your domain, log in, try to look for dns or ip conifg, you need to point your domain name to your staic ip, abc.com point to xxx.xxx.xxx

    and you have to have the web server up and running, or else your computer won't accept incoming request.
