I'm a total newbie to Server 2k3 here. I have a 2k3 server using a static IP(it's a game server which people use this IP to connect), which I connect using remote desktop. I've also registered a domain name for my website(example.com).
What I'm trying to do is when users enter example.com in browser they get my installed apache
localhost on my server(so simple).
I could simply create a subdomain(using CPanel, I'm already using a webspace and host provider for this domain) like sub.example.com and set an IP(works fine) but I need the main domain name to be set.
Here in domain control panel(of example.com) I need two
Domain Names to enter in order to work. Something like ns1.example.com and ns2.example.com.
I haven't set up any Active Directory or DNS yet on my server cause I actually don't know which I need(maybe both).
What steps I need to take, making this to happen? What information I need to ask my ISP(like pref and alter DNS IPs, default gateway,..)? I've googled this but I'm not sure I'm reading the right stuff, Is there a useful article you can point me to(specific for my case)?
Sorry again for newbie question or if this exact question already exists.
