So I've looked and looked and still don't understand what I'm doing really. I recently purchased a domain from godaddy, bought a Mac Mini and want to use it as the server. I guess I'll start off with question number
1: How do I point that domain to my IP on my mini?
I know the IP from the entire network or from Charter, which is The router IP is and the Mini's localhost or IP is
From what I've read it has something to do with port forwarding/mapping on Port 80 and then Port 20 for FTP, which I also want to use.

I know that you must turn on Web Sharing and what not, but I don't know exactly what to do on the godaddy end of things. If anyone has a detailed tutorial on YouTube or something I'd appreciate it. I guess have come to a stand still.
QUOTE Thanks
