I recently setup a window server 2008 server at work. Keep in mind I have never worked with it before:).
Background story is I try to host a couple of sites on the server through iis7, I got domains (currently hosted at other hosters for the moment). I want to point the domain NS to my server on all of them.
I have read how to setup a DNS on the server, so far so good. now my dns is companyname.com
in the server manager I got DNS / companyname.com
in there I got ns.comanyname.com,
in there I got Host(A) with the server ip
now this is where I get confused about how things work with DNS, NS & Host(A). I dont know how to assign(so to speak) the Host(A) to one of my webapps hosted on the iis7, because that is the pointer right?. To leave an example to work with lets say, Hosted.com is hosted on my iis7, on port 81.
You don't understand how great full I would be if somebody could explain this confusion.
EDIT: Do I need to create a DNS for every site hosted on my server? Or just make a A Host/Record?
