No need to run a DNS server for this (unless you really want to ).

I have a similar setup but all I do is change the A record on the domain name I own to my external IP address and forward the ports on my router to my web server. You should be able to change the domain's IP record through the control panel at the domain name provider, mine is 1&1 in the UK and it's simple for me to do but not all will allow it I would imagine.

Hope this helps,
