For our small business network, we host our own internal DNS (Named/Bind) server. However, our corporate website is hosted externally by GoDaddy.
We are able to access our external website if we use
http://www.ourcompany.com. But if we try it without the www
http://ourcompany.com, the browser cannot resolve the address. Also I notice that at the command prompt, we can successfully ping
www.ourcompany.com but not
ourcompany.com. These problems only appear to be an issue from within our corporate network.
Anyways, here is part of our named zone file:
$ORIGIN ourcompany.com. ourcompany.com IN A 173.201.XXX.XXX www IN A 173.201.XXX.XXX server1 IN A 192.168.0.10 server2 IN A 192.168.0.11 serverA IN CNAME server1.ourcompany.com. serverB IN CNAME server2.ourcompany.com. etc...
173.201.XXX.XXX is the GoDaddy address our website is hosted at)
So what am I doing wrong with the DNS configuration here? Do I need to post my
Also, is there any way to have DNS log all DNS requests so that I can look at the log and see exactly what zone config/zone file is being used when someone makes a request?
