I'm trying to cut costs while setting up a Windows dedicated server, and I'm looking for a free Win-compatible alternative to Plesk. I really only use Plesk to set up my DNS (I don't need any of their scheduling, users, etc), so I see no reason to pay $30 a month for the privilege of an easier one-time setup of my server's DNS. The easier to use the better, but I'm willing to get my feet wet setting this up if need be. Anyone have free software or a tutorial they can recommend?

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
I would recommend leaving the DNS setup at your registrar unless you are intending to configure the required two or more DNS servers on separate physical subnets. Just set/add appropriate A records to point to your server using the registrar's interface.
Once you have your domain(s) pointing to your server via the registrar, all you need to do is configure IIS to serve the right content for the domains - managing the DNS is not your problem (unless something goes badly wrong at the registrar).
