I have a server with DNS and IIS7.5 installed. I also own a domain (fictitious name, of course). How do I setup DNS to resolve to machine's IP for this domain provided DNS is installed on the same machine and is reached thru the same interface? In other words, how do I set my DNS server to be reached by other DNS servers (located elsewhere) so that it can resolve my domain to my IP? Is this possible? Shall I do something with the domain name registrar (it is Like denote my DNS as an authoritative server for my domain?

Exactly. You have to create NS records (and glue records) at the registrar that designate your server as the name server for your domain.
