Use the link:contact us system and ask for rDNS to be pointed at your new domain.

Then goto the domains control panel and add a advanced entry with the following

left field: your.domain.name. (note the period at the end of name, it is important)
type: A
pri: leave blank
right field: Place your statis IP here.

Does this make any difference if I intend to host the site myself on my own computer?

You need to create the relevent records as per the tutorial in the 'Tuturials and FAQ forum'.
