Yes, both and are examples

I think there must be a gap in my understanding of the role of
registrars in this process.

I registered my domain name with 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
domain name.

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?
