I'm a developer, who wanted a small VPS to use instead of a shared host. I don't deal much with the IT side of things.
So far, I've purchased a VPS from Thrust and installed 2008 on it.
I enabled updates, and set it to the Web Server Role.
Now, I'd like to use it as its own DNS server (so that is is easy to manage sub domains directly), but I'm not sure where to start... Install AD? Setup DNS?
This is all foreign to me, I'm used to just giving builds to the SA guys :)
