Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have read this topic http://serverfault.com/questions/67888/whats-involved-getting-domain-name-pointed-at-my-dedicated-server-win2008

but it's not precise enough for me.

At my registrar I have

A Records  
Name (ex. www)
TTL (ex. 3600)
IPv4 Address (ex. 192.168.1.1)

When I tried to add www and the IP address of my own server it says error processing the request, why ?

You are not using your WAN address - so that will not work. 192.168.x.x addresses are not routable on the internet and therefor will not be accepted. IPChicken.com is a great place to find you external IP.

I'm not using this IP, it's the example IP from my provider :) –  user46250 Jul 16 '10 at 15:04

On your server, go to http://www.wimip.com/ in a web browser. That IP address there? That's what you need to put into your DNS. As Grishanko said, 192.168.x.x addresses are not valid for use on the internet.

To find out your WAN IP address you can use a web site like What Is My IP Address?

For some reason it didn't work but the registrar did it finally.
