I assume you mean you have an Internet domain mapped to your home or office broadband IP address. First of all, you need a static IP address but I assume you already have that. The biggest problem is usually that the broadband router will not route anything from "inside" to it's external IP address. In theory, you should be able to set this up but I have never managed to get it working!. There are two ways round it:
(a) If you have an internal DNS server, set up a zone for your domain & point the A records at your servers' local address (192.1698.0.x or whatever).
(b) If you don't have a DNS server, edit the "hosts" file which is at "c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts" in Windows XP (note that there is no extension on the filename!). Ascertain your PC's IP address and add a line similar to this to the file:
Your PC's IP address
Substitute your own domain name for "mydomain.com"
If you have other hostsnames (e.g. mail.mydomain.com) then add extra lines with the appropriate IP address (if they're the same server then the same address). Save the file & all should work. You would have to do this on all PC's from which you want to access the domain.
If you're using Linux or MacOS then you can still edit the hosts file - but you probably know where to find it.
If I was wrong & you're actually talking about a Windows domain, then you have to join the computers to the domain & that's bets done from the server management application or, if you don't have that, the appropriate AD control applet.
