Exposing to fully qualified domain name (FQDN)

I'd appreciate some guidance with publishing mapping services. I have a server with ArcGIS Server 10.1, and have installed and configured a web adaptor.  However, I have been told that I must "expose to a fully qualified domain name" in order for others to access the services outside our domain. I can't figure out how to do that, and can't find any documentation about it. I've read through the ArcGIS Web Adaptor help, and find that one benefit is to "expose your GIS server through your organization's standard website and port." But then it doesn't explain how to do that.

I found a discussion here -, but that didn't answer the question.

Could someone point me toward some instructions about this?
