A little confused on using the domain address feature

I see I can manage DNS settings for my server, but I'm a little confused as to what IP I enter. Do I use the public IP, the private IP or do I have to first get an elastic IP and then use that?

If you use HubDNS then you don't need anything

HubDNS takes care of it for you.

However if you wish to just use the IP directly (or use some other dynamic DNS provider?) then the public IP is the on eyou need. AFAIK using an elastic IP is probably even better because then your public IP would remain constant, although it's not a requirement (and not something I've used).
