I think there must be a gap in my understanding of the role of
registrars in this process.
I registered my domain name with internic.ca. I went to their setup
pages, and after hunting around quite a bit (I find their site very
awkward to navigate) the only place where I could tell them to use my
static IP for my domain was in the option "Domain forwarding". I
assumed this is just how it is done (or surely they would have
provided another option?), though I did think it seemed a bit odd. I
thought I would just tell them to associate my IP address with my
Is there some other way that my ip address and domain name should be
connected? If so, what should I be asking my registrar to do?
