C:\Users\Ron>nslookup www.hostileanon.com
Server:  75-114-81-1.net.bhntampa.com
Address:  75.114.81.1

Name:    www.hostileanon.com

You have entered the address backwards.    127 is a loopback private address so it must be reversed.  (DNS info is always entered backwards from the rest of the world) 
If I reverse the address whois says it belongs to Time Warner.

If they don't offer a static IP then it will probably still work as long as you don't turn off or reset your router or do anything else which might require you to get a new IP address assigned.

 

You are back to offering the 192 address again:

I signed up for free dns and I can't figure that out either I set up name servers with registrar I just don't know if they give me an ip they give me and if so I obviously don't know where to put the ip once I get it or we wouldn't be chatting

I thought you would just go back and change the 127.151.93.76 you put in to the reverse.  Instead you are offering 

 

 


C:\Windows\system32>nslookup www.hostileanon.com
Server:  75-114-81-1.net.bhntampa.com
Address:  75.114.81.1
 
Non-authoritative answer:
Name:    www.hostileanon.com
Address:  69.197.18.190
 

 

 

 
Which is the IP of FreeDNS.

When I did put in the reverse address I couldn't access from an outside computer so once again I tried to make an ssl cert with lets encrypt because I believed I needed one to access my site through my lte network and when I thought the static ip from my isp might be an issue I investigated free dns I registered the name server for freedns to my 1and1 and boom public site but now I don't know how to point it to my server so I can implement the Wordpress template I installed I would like to finish what we started so I am going to change my domain back to my home router as you suggested when I use the server on its static ip I just type my domain name/Wordpress and get the template that is ideally what I want to have happen on a public site if I could get my server document root pointed to my freedns domain cool if I could use my router wan as the record for my domain still the question is how do I get my apache vhost to run it how do I get Wordpress from my server on my public site

I can see your webpage now:

If you type in the local IP address of your server (I suppose it's 192.168.0.126)  on a browser on a PC in the local network does it work then?  If so you just need to add an entry to the hosts files on your local PCs to tell them to go to 192.168.0.126 instead of the Internet address they get from dns.

The hosts file is at \windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
You would put the following line after the last comment.
 
192.168.0.126  www.hostileanon.com
 
Windows has made it hard to work with the hosts file.  You may have to take ownership of the file so you can change the permissions.  Might be easier to use
host HostsXpert
 
 
The file is a zip file so you need to right click on it and Extract All.  Then open the folder and finally right click on the HostsXpert.exe file and Run As Admin.  Then you just click on Edit and put  192.168.0.126  www.hostileanon.com in the block below where it says where it says Add Line then click on Add Line and close HostsXpert.
