I don't know how you are getting the .com name to resolve to as that is my modem,
I can't get it do do that.  I tried disabling the DHCP on the computer that is acting as server,
and did switch to static IP in the TCP/IP settings, but then I couldn't access the internet
with any of my three computers.

My ISP said that the problem was in my router, and that I had to do what they called IP mapping.

  By "served" I mean the computer which is running Apache, serving pages.

  By querying my ISP's DNS servers. You can see what an IP address 
  resolves to by pinging it from the commandline. Since the domain name is correctly resolving to your IP 
  address,, there is no problem at all with the nameservers. 
  The problem is the router and computer on your end which are supposed to 
  be serving pages.

  Instead of using DHCP ("obtain an IP address automatically") switch to a 
  static-IP address ("use the following IP address"), which never changes. 
  The procedure is different depending on which operating system you are 
  using and what subnet your router expects your IP addresses to be in. It 
  is configured from the TCP/IP settings for your network adapter.
