You can use your own DNS Server,
I like Posadis.

But I find it easier to use things like EditDNS and EveryDNS.

If you do the 2nd one, just follow the instructions on the site.

But for the first one, let's say you registered your domain at GoDaddy:
Click Domain Host Summary
Then click Click here to see details or modify.
Host: ns1.domain.com
IP: YO.UR.IP
Host: ns2.domain.com
IP: YO.UR.IP

On your computer, run the ZoneEditor that came with Posadis.
Then enter in the details and stuff, they have a tutorial on the site.
Start the server.
The domains you want to host should point to ns1.domain.com and ns2.domain.com


You would add the domains in the httpd.conf file as virtual hosts.

Hope this helps...

Here 's my way.

If you got a domain, such as urdomain.com. Now :

1. If you can manage your DNS :
Add an IP record (and MX Record if you want to use mail )

Ex :

* IP Record (A):
Name -------------------- Numeric IP
urdomain.com -------------------- x.x.x.x
www.urdomain.com -------------------- x.x.x.x
mail.urdomain.com -------------------- x.x.x.x


* MX Record
MailServer -------------------- Mail Destination
mail.urdomain.com -------------------- urdomain.com


with x.x.x.x is ur IP. Check it with : www.whatismyip.com

2. If you can't manage DNS:
+ Reg an account at Zoneedit.com
+ Contact ur Domain Seller to change nameserver to Zoneedit 's nameserver (they provide it when you log on to Zoneedit and add a zone)
+ Log on to Zoneedit, and add Record like that :

* IP Record (A):
Name -------------------- Numeric IP
urdomain.com -------------------- x.x.x.x
www.urdomain.com -------------------- x.x.x.x
mail.urdomain.com -------------------- x.x.x.x


* MX Record
MailServer -------------------- Mail Destination
mail.urdomain.com urdomain.com
