Well, I haven't run apache on Windows, but the basic concepts should be the 
same as in a *nix install:

1) You do have to name your Web server machine.  In XP, it's as simple as 
going to System Properties via My Computer, or Control Panel | System and 
adding the computer name and domain.  

2) You do need to register the domain name with a registrar.  The easiest for 
you might be to have your ISP create the DNS records for your Web server.

HTH.
